  3. [Russian Version] Eva Brollo: The Light-and-Shadow P … CO1-268-R

    Eva Brollo, a successful young professional, gets promoted to lead a team of people for the first time. Following the recipe for success that has worked for her so far, she jumps into the role trying to achieve as much as possible herself and setting strict expectations for her team members. However, her direct style rubs off other company leaders the wrong way and the team relationships begin to suffer. Eva’s boss, Alex Korbel, tried to remedy the situation by having a series of conversations with her and doing a 360-degree feedback exercise, but the situation may already be beyond repair. She is a talent and a valuable asset to the company, so it is not an easy decision, and Alex guesses that he might have also contributed to the problem. This is a typical story of a talented but inexperienced young manager, which can be used to teach a variety of topics related to career management, transitions, onboarding, talent development, self-awareness and career derailment.

  5. QE Liquidity in search of profitability: the dilemma … EC1-135-I

    This case seeks two purposes. First, illustrating the relevance of the economic environment for determining business profitability. Second, putting in practice students acquired macroeconomic analytical skills by using them to support a real life financial investment decision. The students are asked to endorse one of two options, US or Brazil, for the launching of a new investment fund by FTInvest, a financial investment company. The recommendation is made by students acting as members of the Economic Research Department of the company. Therefore, it should be based on the country identified by them as providing the most favorable economic environment for the profitability of the investment in the medium/long run. The decision takes place in the second half of 2011, at a time when the US economy showed a hesitant recovery after the Great Global Recession of 2008 and when the Brazilian economy was booming after a very short blip. It was also at a time when, due to ultra-loose US monetary policy, interest rates and yields were at historical lows in the US while they were relatively high in Brazil.
