Yo Omata is an ambitious woman. At 36, she is a medical science liaison with a U.S. pharmaceutical company in Tokyo, a job that perfectly complements her professional experience as a scientist with a PhD in dentistry.

Now, with a brand new MBA from the Desautels Faculty of Management of McGill University’s Japan program, her sights are firmly set on the C-suite.

It’s a goal she feels is a real possibility despite Japan’s stubbornly poor track record in promoting women to managerial or executive positions.

Over the past year, a record 266 companies have spun off divisions in a trend bankers are calling “Spinmania.” If history is any guide, about 35 of those deals will have leaked undetected to inside traders.

A new study by a team of finance professors suggests one in eight corporate spinoffs and divestments in the U.S. between 1996 and the end of 2013 was preceded by suspicious trading in options markets. The Securities and Exchange Commission hasn’t brought a single case relating to such trading then or since, according to the report, due to be published later this month.

Many managers today don’t relish giving feedback. In the past, feedback was associated with the annual review, a thoroughly unenjoyable hour where everyone involved couldn’t wait for it to end. Today with millennials, feedback is more central to the role of manager than ever before.
