Two Vancouver-based CEOs are among 10 Canadian bosses to receive top approval ratings by employees in a website survey.
Telus CEO Darren Entwistle (MBA'88) received an 84-per-cent rating — seventh overall — while Lululemon CEO Christine Day got an 83-per-cent rating, or ninth overall.
The two business leaders were rated on the website Glassdoor, a job and career site where employees anonymously dish on the pros and cons of their companies and bosses.
I recently had the opportunity to travel to Moscow and St. Petersburg with Professor Karl Moore and 42 other McGill students as part of the Hot Cities of the World Tour. Each year, the tour aims to bring McGill students to various cities which will likely rise to prominence and become global centers of economic activity in the coming years. While representing McGill University, students travelling with the Hot Cities tour have visited Tel Aviv, Dubai, Bangalore, Mumbai, Johannesburg and many other cities. The tour has two primary purposes.
If students could complete their education a year faster, the many benefits would include increased personal wealth, decreased government spending, and more sustainable entitlement programs.
MOOC, an acronym that's odd to pronounce, stands for Massive Open Online Course. In a nutshell, a MOOC allows free access online to top courses and teachers from elite universities.
"MOOCs are probably the most profound development in higher education in the past year," says Arshad Ahmad (MBA'81), an associate professor of finance at Concordia's John Molson School of Business. The experts envision classes of 100,000 students or more, from around the globe, taught by top professors with all the latest presentation tools.
Professor Karl Moore of the Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University speaks to David Teece, a senior professor at the Haas Business School, University of California, Berkeley.
