Top business schools attach great significance to their alumni. Graduate networks are promoted as catalysts for career opportunities and the most successful graduates are lauded as role models for prospective students. Those who have climbed to the top of the largest companies are pinstriped pin-ups for the MBA.

FT analysis shows that almost a third (31 per cent) of the world’s 500 largest listed companies by market capitalisation, as featured in the most recent FT500, are led by an MBA graduate. Most of these earned their degree on one of the world’s top programmes.

Watch this hilarious “All About That Bass” parody from a group of Columbia MBA students

The Columbia Business School Follies, the sketch comedy group known for its hysterical mix of song, dance and incisive economic commentary, produced an amazing video pushing back against stereotypes and double standards faced by high-powered women in the workplace.

"A love letter to all the badass bitches who aren’t afraid to be themselves in the business world."

 

Big ups to Warrick Dunn. The retired pro football player has just given away his 139th home to a single mother. His charity helps families by giving single moms a home. He know the importance; he became the head of his household at age 18 when his mom, who was an off-duty cop, was murdered by some armed robbers.

Oh, and props to him also for graduating last year with his MBA from Emory.

If you want to get involved in what Warrick is doing, check out his website: http://www.warrickdunn.com/platform.html

I’m not going to use this space to unnecessarily tear anyone down, but I will say that there are some guys who’ve been involved in the same organizations as Mr. Dunn that should consider his example.

Babson’s Design Thinking Club: I started this demo at the world famous Babson College in front of a bunch of MBA candidates (put that in your pipe and smoke it those who type business people as the heartless caste; F that shit) (bless Takuo Urushihara and Garrett). …and Surbhi Bachhawat pay attention. (N, what I meant when I said I had a gig the next day; happy bday) (A, I’m reading the book now).

TIME TO BE PROACTIVE

I will learn from this mistake and prevent it in the future.

As soon as I have access to all of my syllabi tomorrow, I will print them off, come home, and write deadlines on my calendar so I do not have the excuse of “I didn’t know.”

I have the resources, I need to use them.

If I would have done this exam, I would have gotten around a B in the class. It’s not that I do not know the material, I just did not stay on top of the drop boxes in D2L.

*this is me taking ownership so I feel less like a blob about it. Thanks to everyone that messaged me support. <3 I know live goes on, but no one likes to feel like a disappointment or failure. boo.*

why do people call any majors useless when MBAs exist

if you need some academia to ridicule you’ve got the perfect target right there

it’s literally the pure distilled essence of rich people using phony academics to justify colonial institutional oppression

you can get a degree in being a classist in the year 2014

"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."

Watch this dramatic reading of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “Letter from a Birmingham Jail,” produced by UT McCombs School of Business management professor James Fredrickson for his MBA Art of Leadership class.

"It is very powerful and illustrates a lot of important leadership issues," Fredrickson says. "It’s a wonderful piece of writing, the language is vivid, and it is a great example of the role language can play in leadership."

The film’s actor and director are College of Fine Arts alumni Corey Jones and Ya’Ke Smith. It starts with the published statement by eight fellow clergymen that prompted King’s letter. Jones begins reciting King’s letter at around the 4-minute mark.
