Harvard Business School’s bricks-and-clicks spending spree

Mon, 2016-07-18 12:03

As dean of Harvard Business School, part of Nitin Nohria’s job is to mythologise its vast campus. The inauguration last month of yet another new building offered a perfect marketing opportunity.

...Not all are convinced that it equates to real experience, however. Henry Mintzberg, a McGill University management professor, is a long-time critic of MBAs and the case method, which he sees as too theoretical. He characterises the Field innovation as “young know-nothings shooting off their mouths about things they don’t understand”.

Les touristes évitent la France

Mon, 2016-07-18 11:57

L’attaque de Nice a eu un effet immédiat sur les touristes, qui ont été nombreux vendredi à annuler leur voyage en France.

Des événements tragiques comme celui survenu sur la Côte d'Azur donnent toujours un dur coup au tourisme pendant quelques mois.

Lors des attentats du 11 septembre 2011, les visiteurs internationaux avaient attendu neuf mois avant de retourner en plus grand nombre à New York. Mais la crainte des touristes ne perdure pas non plus pendant plusieurs années, selon ce qui a été constaté par le passé.

Geoff Molson: ‘You need to be humble, you need to allow other leaders to lead’

Mon, 2016-07-18 11:21

Geoff Molson, 45, is president and CEO of CH Group Limited Partnership, owner of the Montreal Canadiens, Bell Centre and Evenko, and chairman of the board of Molson Coors Brewing Co. 

My father taught me to never expect anything that others wouldn’t be able to expect as well. In Montreal, with the name Molson, you could very easily put yourself in a position where you would expect things in life. My father’s advice has served me well and has led me to work harder and achieve things, but also be humble and not be different from anyone else.

Broken heart? There might be a pill for that

Mon, 2016-07-18 10:03

Back in 2012, a team led by Alain Brunet, a psychiatric professor at McGill University and researcher at the Douglas, set the trauma world on fire with a new treatment for PTSD, using a beta-blocker that reduces heart rate and blood pressure. Brunet’s work at the Douglas appeared to demonstrate traumatic memories could be healed and, furthermore, memories linked to addiction cravings could be reduced. His work was covered in The Atlantic and Wired magazines."Heartbreak, or relational trauma, is almost universal, and it’s one of the top reasons people seek help. — Alain Brunet"
