Deux ans. C’est le nombre d’années d’espérance de vie que nous gagnerions si nous passions moins de trois heures par jour assis, selon une étude américaine publiée en 2012. Selon les auteurs, la position assise prolongée est aussi néfaste pour la santé que le tabagisme ou l’obésité.
For the modern airline passenger, boarding a plane has morphed into a torturous Tetris-like ordeal—finding that last nook in the overhead bin to jam in your own, probably oversized, carry-on bag.
... “Airlines somewhat have brought this on themselves by starting to charge [for checked bags] because people are going to try to avoid those charges,” says Karl Moore, a McGill professor and aviation expert. “If you’re going to have to pay $50, you’re certainly incented to avoid putting that luggage [in cargo] below.”
Thanks to a higher education grant from Procter and Gamble, the Career Services Team at McGill University’s Desautels Faculty of Management has created the ultimate challenge. Using the 2015 Millennium Development Goals established by the United Nations as a guide, participating BCom and MBA students were assigned global challenges and, under the umbrella of collaboration and competition, teams were encouraged to apply integrated management solutions designed to create a global impact.

Women in Business Conference: Agile Lead-HER-ship: The Double-Bind Redefined
The Annual Women in Business Conference is an event unique to Montréal and one of the largest and most prestigious events of MMWA and John Molson Women in Business Club’s (JMWIBC). Started in 2009, the WIB Conference has grown to bring together over 150 attendees including students, alumni, faculty, Montreal business professionals and distinguished speakers. The theme for this year’s conference is “Agile Lead-HER-ship: The Double-bind Redefined.”
Finding a mutual-fund manager who can beat the market is tough. Winners flame out. Losers revive. The resurgent losers flame out again.
No wonder low-cost index-based exchange-traded funds and mutual funds—which seek only to mimic the return of a designated slice of the market—have eclipsed actively managed funds as the investment of choice for many people.
... One problem: Over long periods, few fund managers continue to outperform, says Laurent Barras, a finance professor at McGill University in Montreal.
