Keith Reinhard, Chairman Emeritus of DDB Worldwide, Presenting to MCNY MBA Students

November 28, 2012

Keith Reinhard, Chairman Emeritus of DDB Worldwide, is invited as an MBA Guest Lecturer at Metropolitan College of New York this Thursday November 29th!

Meet us at Lecture Room 11P @ 5:30 pm for networking session.  Mystery Gift will be given by Mr. Reinhard himself to students who arrive early!

Keith Reinhard, Chairman Emeritus, DDB Worldwide

Keith Reinhard is Chairman Emeritus of DDB Worldwide, which ranks among the world’s largest and most creative advertising networks with 200 offices in 90 countries. DDB has won more Grand Prix awards than any other agency in the over 50-year history of the International Advertising Festival in Cannes. As a working creative director, Keith was responsible for McDonald’s “You Deserve a Break Today” and State Farm’s long running theme “Like a Good Neighbor, State Farm Is There.” Teams under Keith’s direction created award-winning campaigns for Anheuser-Busch, Volkswagen, PepsiCo and others.

In 1986 Keith was one of the architects of the advertising industry’s first and only three-way merger, creating Omnicom, which today ranks as one of the world’s largest advertising and marketing services holding company. Concurrent with the creation of Omnicom, Keith accomplished the merger of Doyle Dane Bernbach and Needham Harper Worldwide to create the present network, DDB Worldwide.

Advertising Age has referred to Keith Reinhard as the advertising industry’s “soft-spoken visionary” and in 1999 named him one of the top 100 influentials in advertising history. Many of the media and compensation concepts first enunciated by Keith are now common practice in the industry. He was inducted into the Advertising Hall of Fame in 2007.

From 2002 to 2010, Keith served as President of Business for Diplomatic Action, Inc. (BDA), a not-for-profit effort he founded to enlist the U.S. business community in actions aimed at improving the standing of America in the world. During its eight years of operation, BDA created and implemented a number of programs credited with building new bridges of understanding and respect between the United States and the world. As the organization’s leader, Keith testified to the U.S. Congress and was broadly featured in the media, from the BBC, The Daily Show, Fox News, CNN, and CNBC to publications including The Economist, Fast Company, The Atlantic, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, the International Herald Tribune and The Financial Times.

Keith has contributed generously of his time and talents to a broad range of initiatives. He serves on the boards of Sesame Workshop and Jazz at Lincoln Center and chairs the marketing committees of the boards of both organizations. He is past chairman of Union Theological Seminary in New York and past chairman of the American Association of Advertising Agencies. Keith is on the faculty and board of advisors of the Berlin School of Creative Leadership in Berlin, Germany. He is a member of the steering committee of the Association for a Better New York (ABNY) and serves on the advisory boards of the U.S. Center for Citizen Diplomacy, USC Center on Public Diplomacy at the Annenberg School at the University of Southern California, the Chief Executive Leadership Institute at the Yale School of Management, and the Johns Hopkins Prostate Cancer Center.

Keith is the father of seven children. He and his wife, Rose-Lee, live in Manhattan.

2012 MCNY Graduation Speech from Mohamed Rezk, MBA

July 19, 2012

MBA Graduate Mohamed Rezk

Mohamed Rezk, Graduate of the MBA in General Management Program

Mohamed Rezk, MBA

MCNY Graduation speech 2012

Ladies and Gentlemen: families, friends, honorable guests and distinguished MCNY faculty, it’s a great honor to stand before you today on behalf of the graduating class of 2012 and reflect on our feelings in this great moment of our lives.

I would like to share a story with you. When I started the school I was terrified.

More than couple of years has passed by since I finished my bachelor degree and there I was… In school again… reading through the syllabuses and class requirements.
I was overwhelmed and to be honest with you – I wanted to quit.

But a week has passed by and we had our first assignment that I decided to complete, thinking – I will give a try, if this doesn’t work I can always drop out.
When Professor Hassan was giving back the graded assignment he took me aside and asked:
Can I use your paper as an example?

I got tense and replied: Example of what?  What not to do?
The professor laughed….
That was the day when I got the first A!

And 18 months later I am standing in the front of you and together we can celebrate our accomplishment!
I always believe that nothing worth having comes easy. And it is true. This diploma did not come easy. The combination of hard work, determination, and dedication that we have invested can make us confident to stand here today and graduate together, knowing it was not easy, but it was an experience worth having.

During our journey in MCNY, three things became essential parts of our life: assignments, presentations, and group projects. As we all know the group projects were the most challenging, but in the end they taught us a fundamental lesson: to be team players and how to become good leaders.
Finding a job is on the top of every graduate list, it’s tough, but I am an optimist, because as MCNY graduates, we have a lot to offer.
MCNY taught us how to dream big and how to accomplish anything we put our minds to.
It made us to believe in ourselves and has given us the ability to put knowledge to good use .

At MCNY, we discovered how to become job creators, not job seekers. Our constructive action classes taught us what is required to turn a simple idea into a successful business, we learned how to write an ultimate business plan, and how to finance and market that business plan.

Our study abroad was one of the most valuable experiences in the program, one that enhanced and expanded our horizons.

We experienced the business world in a global context and developed a more sophisticated perspective. The study abroad also strengthened our friendships through the work we did and the fun we had… But I am not sharing the details. What happened in London stays in London.

Graduation is not an end; it is a beginning of our new journey to pursue our dreams. I would like to congratulate and thank you all.
Thank you for the memories, friendship, and laughter. Even the occasional battle over a project. All of these made us stronger.
I wish you all the best my friends.

On behalf of the graduate students of 2012. I would like to thank all the professors and staff of MCNY.

Thank you for what you have given us: for your time, energy, patience, and all your hard work.

Our parents, spouses, siblings, and all our loved ones that are witnessing our graduation today, There is no words that could express how thankful we are that we have you in our lives. Thank you for your support, encouragement, prayers and understanding

Congratulation to All
Thank you!
