Another bunch of crazy knowledgeable profs. 2nd Season 2014/15

Here’s another bunch of crazy knowledgeable IE Business School professors who don’t think twice about revealing what makes them tick and how their passions in life often serve to illustrate key points about the subjects they teach.

This video features just some of the professors who have given us insights into their lives and specializations over the course of the last academic year. I hope you’ll enjoy this reminder of Jeffrey Char’s fondness for chocolate, Felipe Quintana’s passion for frontenis, Eduardo Morcillo’s China, Joe Haslam´s love of mountains, Dean Iniguez’s homage to exec ed from China, Erik Hiep’s walk around Amsterdam, Kevin Dubin’s hike through Silicon Fen, Newton Campos’s challenging analysis of what it really means to be an entrepreneur, Susana Campuzano’s penchant for luxury, and the circus Felix Muñoz chose as the setting for his video.

I’d just like to add a very big thank you to all the professors who have been the subject of Other Side videos with such enthusiasm and good grace, and don’t mind admitting that I’m looking forward to discovering the other side of many more IE professors this coming year!

Frontenis

Operations Management Prof. Felipe Quintana is one of those rare people who love frontenis. I say rare because being a tennis player myself, it’s hard for me to understand how anyone can like frontenis!!! Even more so when the person in question has been a tennis champion, as Prof. Quintana has… Well, he just says that he loves being able to smash the ball the way they do in frontenis!!!
Prof. Quintana is an industrial engineer with extensive corporate experience. He has worked for overseas companies such as LVMH and Robert Bosch and is currently working for Aguas Minerelas de Firgas (leader in the mineral water and soft drink sector in the Canary Islands).
Here Prof. Quintana draws some interesting comparisons between lean operations and frontenis. I can’t help saying that I would’ve preferred him to play tennis…! In any case, I have to admit that it’s great to watch him really smashing the ball with his racquet!!
