Title: Offline Showrooms and Customer Migration in Omni-Channel Retail


Abstract:
 Omni-channel environments where customers shop online and offline at the same retailer are increasingly ubiquitous and have important new implications for demand generation and operational efficiency. We pro-pose that given choice and opportunity, customers self-select into channels according to their need for visceral product information, i.e., the need to touch, feel, and sample physical products before purchasing. Injecting a new showroom into a market induces customer migration and has significant impacts on channel sales and operational efficiency for all customers within the showroom's trading area.

Using quasi-experimental data on showroom openings by WarbyParker.com, the leading online US eyewear retailer, we find that introducing a showroom: (1) increases demand overall and through the online channel as well, (2) improves operational efficiency by increasing conversion on sampling and decreasing returns, and (3) that these effects are amplified for those customers who have the most acute need for the product. Moreover, these effects strengthen with time as the showroom contributes not only to brand awareness but also to what we term channel awareness as well. We verify that these effects are robust to alternative model specifications and sample selection procedures; implications for omni-channel retailing are discussed.

BRICS as 'Re-Emerging' Markets: Bracing fro the 'New' New World In this lecture, Professor Marcos Troyjo will examine the trajectory of globalization over the past 25 years and what the world should look like in scenarios projected all the way to 2030. He will review the "deep globalization" made possible by the end of the Cold War, and then show how we are now running a "risk of de-globalization" in which countries and companies restructure their strategies into protectionistic and individualistic actions. Professor Troyjo will also explain how the concept of “emerging markets” came up in the last few years as an idea associated with the future of the world, and argues that their performance in the coming years will be judged less by what we today label either "advanced" or "emerging" economies, and more by a country's ability to competitively shape up to the “reglobalization” now in the making.

CCEs On-Campus Recruiting (OCR) Program brings employers to campus for the purpose of meeting, interviewing and recruiting students. On-Campus Interviewing (OCI) is critical to the success of the OCR Program for both students and employers alike.

To gain OCI access, students must attend an On-Campus Interviewing Power Half Hour workshop or complete an On-Campus Recruiting Program Overview online training (http://www.careereducation.columbia.edu/OCI-) and sign off on the policies and procedures. Students who attend this workshop will be granted OCI access within two business days of the training.

In this training, we will provide an overview of CCE services and the ways in which students can best prepare for their job search. We will also review how to search and apply for jobs and internships using LionSHARE, CCEs online job database and recruiting system. Largely, we will speak about the OCR Program, with a particular focus on on-campus interviews. Students will learn how to best prepare for on-campus interviews, become aware of both student and employer expectations throughout this process, and most importantly, learn how to use available resources while navigating the job/internships search and interview process.

For more information about OCI, go to http://www.careereducation.columbia.edu/findajob/lionshare/oci or call 212-854-9167

Film screening and discussion with Karin Chien, Film Producer, and Ying Qian, Assistant Professor, Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures, Columbia University. Moderated by Robert Barnett, Director of the Modern Tibetan Studies Program, Columbia University.

Admission free but registration recommended.

Award winning filmmaker Gu Taos weirder-than fiction documentary is a portrait of Weijia, a hunter-poet with a tumultuous life. Weijian is a member of the Ewenki minority, whose homeland is near Siberia in far northeastern China. Forbidden to continue hunting, the Ewenki have been forced to move from their forests into dreary Chinese government-designed permanent villages. Deprived of means of livelihood like many of his people, Weijia spends his time drinking and being a poet... when all of a sudden, as in a fairytale, a young teacher from Hainan, the tropical paradise island in Chinas far south, comes to marry him and sweep him away. Weijia, clad in tropical print shirts, doesnt quite fit into paradise, and his story turns dark, with intimations of madness and violence.

Co-Sponsored by the Inner Asia Curriculum Development Project and the Modern Tibetan Studies Program

Unlocking the Mysteries of the Physical World with Data Science: A Natural Sciences and Data Sciences Interface Workshop

Data science offers new ways of looking at the world. At Columbia University and elsewhere, researchers are mining massive data sets to investigate the origins of our universe, the effects of climate change on our oceans and the structure of promising nanoscale materials. With support of the Moore and Sloan foundations, this work is part of a broader effort to bring the latest machine learning and statistical techniques to traditional scientific analysis. Researchers from Columbia, NYU, the University of Missouri and the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies will discuss how data science is enabling discovery in their fields.

Funded in part by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation through Grant GBMF3941 to Columbia University and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.

THE SIGMA LECTURE

Rh(III) Catalysis for C-H Activation

Presented by Tom Rovis, Colorado State University
Hosted by James Leighton

Thursday September 10, 2015

1:30 Meet the Speaker in room 328 Havemeyer
4:00 Tea & Cookies in room 328 Havemeyer
4:30 Seminar in room 209 Havemeyer

Abstract: The ubiquity of C-H bonds in organic molecules makes them ideal precursors for the installation of new C-C bonds, while also posing a great challenge in terms of selectivity.  We have been engaged in using common directing groups to selectively activate nearby C-H bonds for the synthesis of nitrogen heterocycles from amide, imine and oxime precursors. Rational ligand design has been a major component of our work with both modified cyclopentadienyl ligands and a biologically derived macromolecular environment having an impact on selectivities.  Reaction development, mechanistic investigations and applications to synthesis will be discussed.

Tomislav Rovis was born in Zagreb in the former Yugoslavia but was largely raised in Southern Ontario, Canada.  Following his undergraduate studies at the University of Toronto, he earned his Ph.D. degree at the same institution in 1998 under the direction of Professor Mark Lautens.  From 1998-2000, he was an NSERC postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University with Professor David A. Evans.  In 2000, he began his independent career at Colorado State University and was promoted in 2005 to Associate Professor and in 2008 to Professor.  His group's accomplishments have been recognized by a number of awards including an NSF CAREER and a Roche Excellence in Chemistry award.  He has been named a GlaxoSmithKline Scholar, Amgen Young Investigator, Eli Lilly Grantee, Alfred P. Sloan Fellow, Monfort Professor at Colorado State University, Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Katritzky Young Investigator in Heterocyclic Chemistry, and an Arthur C. Cope Scholar.  He currently holds the John K. Stille Chair in Chemistry.
