The Desautels professor who is taking on the MBA

Tue, 2017-05-09 12:43

Henry Mintzberg is looking beyond the MBA. For years, the Desautels Professor railed against what many in the corporate world see as the ultimate form of business education.

Instead, he launched the International Masters Program for Managers (IMPM) in 2004. The program eschews MBA staples like case studies and strategy in favour of a learning process based on sharing and learning from one’s fellow students.

Crowdfunding falls short on inclusiveness

Tue, 2017-05-09 12:37

Crowdfunding’s profile has been on a constant rise ever since it first landed two decades back. It’s an ideal platform for entrepreneurs in edgy sectors looking for capital, as well as for getting consumers directly involved in funding products that interest them. The other side of the equation has always been to get funding for traditionally under-served entrepreneur groups like women or people of colour.

Bio-Inspired Coupling of Phenols and Amines

Tue, 2017-05-09 09:38

1,2-Oxy-aminoarenes are omnipresent in biologically active molecules and advanced materials, but current syntheses are often atom and step inefficient, and can require highly optimized and expensive catalysts. Recent work, conducted by graduate student Kenn Esguerra and postdoc Wenbo Xu in the Lumb Group, has made important strides towards improving the efficiency of 1,2-oxy-amioarene synthesis by interfacing two unrelated, but complementary, biosynthetic processes.
