Paul Murray*

Paul Murray would soon graduate from business school with his MBA. He had accepted a fine job offer. Paul’s wife, Nancy, was an attorney with a local firm specializing in corporate law. Paul and Nancy were expecting their first child a few months after Paul’s graduation. With the experience of paying for their own graduate educations fresh in their minds, Paul and Nancy recognized that they would have to plan early to accumulate enough money to send their child through four years of college.

Paul wanted to accumulate a fund equal to four times the first year’s tuition, room, and board by the time his child entered college. Paul and Nancy assumed that these fees might increase, perhaps annually, through the four years of college. However, if they invested the funds appropriately, the investments would yield enough to cover the increase in fees through the four years of college.

Ideally, Paul and Nancy wanted their child to be able to choose among an array of public or private colleges with good academic reputations. A recent newspaper article had indicated that the average tuition, room, and board at private four-year institutions was about $15,000 per year. They felt that if their child were entering college this coming fall, $18,000 per year for tuition, room, and board would provide the range of choice they sought.

1. In the recent past, college fees had been increasing at about 8 percent per year. Because this rate of increase exceeded the general inflation rate, Paul and Nancy felt it would decline to a level closer to measures of general inflation, such as the Consumer’s Price Index. Thus, they decided to assume that college fees would increase 6 percent per year. At this rate, how…...

...A CASE STUDY ON MOTIVATION Amit was a very brilliant student. He loved challenges and was always ready for new challenges. His lateral thinking skills were excellent and he hated to do things in the same manner every time and solve the problems by using traditional step-by-step logic. He completed his PGDM from a reputed institute. Amit joined XYZ project at ABC Ltd. Delhi in December after successfully completing his training at Bangalore. He was always appreciated for his “out of the box thinking” by his trainers. He always wanted to go back to Delhi, his hometown and live with his parents and when he got a transfer to Delhi he didn’t waste a single moment in saying yes to the new project and heading towards Delhi. Many of his friends were also moving out from Bangalore at the same time which only made his decision easier. He felt that the XYZ project offered better career prospects as it was a new project and he was offered to work on the current technologies that were in demand in the market. He was sure he would excel in his new position at ABC Ltd, just as he had done as a trainee. He joined as Assistant Systems Manager with a handsome pay hike for becoming a confirmed employee of the company. The company also had international operations and there was more than a slim chance that he would be sent to USA or UK on a project. Knowing that this would give him a lot of exposure, besides looking good on his resume, he was quite excited about the new job. I......

Paper on the Waltz of Sociability a Quebec High School Vered Amit – Talai indulges her readers with a commonly accepted phenomenon of Western civilization in which adolescents rarely transition into adulthood with their childhood friends through the experiences of a group of high school students in The Waltz of Sociability: Intimacy, Dislocation, and Friendship in a Quebec High School. It is assumed that peer relationships developed during adolescence are of considerable importance but only temporary. The social and cultural ramifications of this assumption are a recurring theme in this article. Amit-Talai takes a more personal approach towards investigating this assumption rather than the typical sociological and anthropological approach which view these temporary relationships merely “as an aspect of life cycle development” (Amit-Talai 233). Amit-Talai dismantles these ways of thinking by reevaluating four common features associated with high school students teetering upon the precipice of graduation and subsequent adulthood; “(1) that true friendships are private, free-floating relationships; (2) that adolescents have more time for developing such friendships and fewer competing commitments; (3) that friendship takes on a special intensity in adolescence; (4) that adolescent friendships are necessarily transient as a function of life cycle changes” (Amit-Talai 236). The development of friends during adolescence is crucial to one’s social status and general development. Amit-Talai shows that the time......

Social Roles and Identities Determine Intelligibility and Voice

...Friendship in a Quebec High School,” Vered Amit-Talai made a compelling argument about how the sociability of adolescents is systemically flawed and fated to deteriorate due to the lack of importance than their social role as a student put on it. As a high school student, their social role was one of committing to studies at school, participating in after school activities, completing homework, and also managing to fit in some family time whenever possible. Friendships came last. In fact, it is interesting to note that the way the education system was designed naught but aided in the disassociation of each student from those of the grades outside their own. “Courses were organized by grade. Students therefore moved from one class to another in cohorts of one-year age spans. This institutional age grading [caused them to] …congregate with peers from the same grade. Grade and age differences were regarded as glaringly obvious,” (Amit-Talai 239). This clearly shows that the social role of the grade of the student was enough to influence their intelligibility and voice to be heard only by their own grade. This was so much so the case that later, Amit-Talai described how Matt, a student who had to stay back a grade to finish some courses that he required, “felt out of place and distanced from this new cohort,” (Amit-Talai 239). Thus, he had to focus his “efforts on maintaining extra school contacts with his previous… companions,” (Amit-Talai 239) whereas his current......

...the location. Printed ads and pamphlets were also a significant expense for Froppa. Story of Amit: Amit was the younger son of Mr. Bansal. While his elder brother always wanted to join Froppa and help his father, Amit was always fascinated by computers. Amit did his engineering in Computer Science and joined a reputed MNC after his graduation. After 6 years of experience, he recently shifted to an internet start-up as part of their engineering team where the environment started to make him think deeply about his passion and belief. There is so much entrepreneurial action in the technology related space in India and he wanted to be a part of it. He realized that he has great connections, capital and retail know-how from his family which can be combined with his technology experience. E-commerce seemed to be an obvious choice and he started evaluating it seriously. He talked to his father about building an e-commerce presence of Froppa and he was supportive of that. Mr. Bansal motivated Amit by saying that in his time, Mr Bansal was able to make 10 stores in 2 cities from one small store and his son might be able to expand to whole country through e-commerce. He was also willing to invest up to Rs 2Cr if Amit is completely convinced. However, he also mentioned that Amit should carefully evaluate risks as it will be his decision. Approval of his father made Amit really excited. He started spending time understanding products and suppliers as well as......

A Campus

...start-up that means “Business” KOZHIKODE: IIM-K graduate Amit Kourav wants to lead by example. When most of his classmates lapped up high paying jobs with MNCs and leading corporate, Amit decided to stay back on campus to prove a point in entrepreneurship. Originally from Madhya Pradesh, Amit, who passed out in March 2011, has been staying back at the student's hostel for the past one year to run High Octane, a boutique cafe-food court- bookshop combine, which has been a big hit with the students and faculty on the campus. Buoyed by the success of the plush outlet, Amit is currently in talks with banks and consultants to roll out a cafe chain on campuses and educational institutions in other parts of the country. Amit has also been advising many current students on starting new enterprises. "I was the coordinator of the entrepreneur cell on the campus in my final year and we used to hold regular events and talks for fostering entrepreneurship among students. I had always wanted to start something on my own ever since my college days. It was a private talk with a Harvard professor who visited the IIM-K campus for a guest lecture series which really stirred me to take the plunge," Amit said. Though he initially toyed with many project ideas, the cafe- bookshop-food court combination emerged as the most viable project as there was a huge demand for such a place on the campus. "Our idea was to create a place which the campus community could relate to and think of as......
