Desautels alumnus ran brokerage firm, was president of TSX

Thu, 2017-05-11 10:25

J. Pearce Bunting  (BCom'52) grew up during the Great Depression, then rose through the ranks of his father’s brokerage firm to become president in 1967. Ten years later, he became president of the TSX and modernized the operation by introducing a computerized trading system.

The technology was immensely unpopular with old-guard floor traders, but times were changing—and Mr. Bunting is now remembered as having been good for the exchange. Patrick Mars, who ran Bunting’s old company, said that “Under his watch the exchange prospered and did well.”

Karl Moore on introverts, extroverts, and Warren Buffett

Thu, 2017-05-11 10:17

Back in January, Karl Moore took a group of Desautels students to meet Warren Buffett at his Omaha offices. Mr. Buffett is known to be an introvert, and his conduct during the visit bore that out; rather than expounding on everything that came up, Mr. Buffett stuck to speaking on subjects he knows well. He also avoided working the crowd, rather staying with a small group of students and having a full-on conversation.

Maybe it’s time to second-guess the Harvard MBA and its ilk

Thu, 2017-05-11 10:13

In a recent op-ed, Financial Times editor Andrew Hill takes issue with the methodologies of the MBA programs offered by the Harvard Business School and other schools worldwide. In this, he aligns himself with The Golden Passport author Duff McDonald and Desautels Professor Henry Mintzberg, who says that the HBS doesn’t train its MBA students to be good managers, but is rather “putting them on a fast-track they don’t deserve to be on.”
