Canus se redresse et se (re)lance aux États-Unis

Mon, 2014-02-17 09:24

C’est connu, les plans d’affaires se déroulent rarement comme prévu. Les entrepreneurs qui s’en sortent sont capables de se réinventer. Parlez-en à la direction de Canus qui, en 2004, avait un chiffre d’affaires de 19 millions de dollars. Dix ans plus tard, il est de… 15 M$. C’est ce qui est arrivé à André Beauregard (EMBA'14), qui compte maintenant doubler ses ventes chez les détaillants américains.

Why Bitcoins Lack Currency to be 'Money'

Mon, 2014-02-17 09:24

Milton Friedman, in his book Money Mischief, reported the well-known story of the monetary system of a small island in Micronesia. At the end of the 19th century, the inhabitants used stone wheels as a medium of exchange and as a store of wealth. The colonial government imposed "fees" on disobedient district chiefs by painting black crosses on these stone wheels, thus "confiscating" them. This induced the locals to change their ways and work harder, paving roads they were previously reluctant to pave, in order to have these marks erased and get their wealth back.

New Management Concentrations Developed by Two Students

Thu, 2014-02-06 14:50

Starting in Fall 2014, students in the Faculty of Management will be able to major in Strategic Management. 

... “Social Business is a type of company that runs just as a normal business—selling a product, earning revenue—but whose ultimate goal is to solve a social problem­ as opposed to maximizing profit, like many companies aim to do,” explained Joanna Klimczak, U3 Management, one of the two students who started the project.
