New Internet Start-Up Hypejar Uses Social Media to Accurately Forecast Demand for Future Products

Thu, 2013-07-11 11:05

An online social platform that accurately forecasts future sales of new products has won first place at the Desautels Faculty of Management’s entrepreneurial competition, the Dobson Cup.

... Team leader and Desautels graduate Grant Yim (BCom'03) says “It is unique in the fact that there is nowhere else to find, in one place, information about products that have not yet been released. Also, existing market research organisations do not leverage social media, and as such their data is expensive and the sample sizes are smaller.”

Hot Cities Report: Russia Is Many Things, But Boring Isn't One of Them

Fri, 2013-04-26 10:07

Ten months ago, I volunteered to help organize Desautels’ fifth annual Hot Cities of the World trip. I enjoy the challenge of detailed logistics; in my pre-MBA life, I booked national concert tours and publicity campaigns. As it turns out, booking a Canadian tour and booking a Russian trip for 44 people are very different beasts.

Russian Business Part of a Post-Modern Future

Tue, 2013-03-26 11:09

Karl Moore blames his generation for a lot of things - including bad architecture. 

"Our library at McGill, it's ugly," he told The Moscow News on a recent visit to the city. "Today, we have gorgeous new buildings, gorgeous old buildings, but there's a time where you go, ‘This is as bad as Stalinist or Maoist brutal stuff.' It was useful, but it was ugly."

Tue, 2013-03-26 11:09

It might seem crazy to visit Russia in the middle of winter, yet the goal of the recent McGill University Hot Cities Tour was to see the "real" Russia, even if it meant getting lost in Moscow at minus-2 degrees Fahrenheit. 

This was my second experience on the tour, and when the time came to choose the next destination, Russia was at the top of our list. As a member of the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa/Singapore) emerging nations, it is seen as a place of great opportunity, we wanted to see what all the fuss was about.
