Dean’s Q&A: Peter Todd, HEC Paris

When Peter Todd joined the administration of HEC Paris last July, he made history as the first non-French dean of the top-ranked school. This past January, he helped the business school make history again when, as a result of a new French law, it became the first school in France to take on the new status of a consular higher education institution (or EESC) in the country, giving the school its first true whiff of independence in its more than 130-year history.

Tuition Hikes Aren’t Stopping MBA Applicants

Lower tuition costs are a selling point for MBA programs outside the U.S. But some schools are starting to bring their fees more in line with U.S. schools, and they’re finding it doesn’t necessarily deter applicants.

This week Financial Times covered recent changes at McGill University’s Desautels Faculty of Management in Canada and Vlerick Business School in Belgium. The report highlighted an interesting pattern: after dramatically increasing their tuition, these schools are attracting more applicants.

Hollywood Has No Business Case for Booking All-White Casts

Hollywood’s track record on showcasing minority talent and storylines is pretty awful, even considering some recent efforts to diversify programming. Some studios argue that the fault lies not with them, but with consumers, who—they claim—prefer predominantly white casts. But is there any truth to that?

Venkat Kuppuswamy and Peter Younkin, business-school professors at the University of North Carolina and McGill University, respectively, took a look at data on the film industry in order to measure how diverse casts went over at box offices.
