Q&A on Changes to Some Postdocs' Status

Thu, 2017-05-25 15:38

Originally posted on December 9, 2016

Some McGillians have shared concerns about the impact of the government’s ruling on postdocs – specifically regarding the classification of some McGill postdocs as employees, and the payroll deductions and employer fees that this classification entails. McGill shares many of these concerns. And while we must abide by provincial law and apply these changes, we hope to at least clarify the situation as best we can.

Essay calling for a complete revamp of executive education cites Henry Mintzberg

Wed, 2017-05-24 13:12

A recent essay in Chief Learning Officer calls for a massive rethink of how executive education is designed and delivered.

It starts with the premise that executive education needs a major overhaul. As Desautels Professor Henry Mintzberg says, “The practice of management, as evidenced in a lot of big corporations and banks, is utterly dreadful. I don’t think business schools really get it, or care to get it.”
