Coming to Toronto on 28 February?

If so then you may want to come and meet us at the World MBA Tour at the Metro Toronto Convention Center.  You will have a chance to speak to a representative from the School as well as recent MBA alumni.  Hope to see you there!  If you read this after and missed us there then just use this link to read about our programmes and also the scholarships on offer.

Some interesting news from the School is the new Centre for Charitable Giving and Philanthropy.  The centre is funded jointly by the ESRC, the Cabinet Office, the Carnegie UK Trust and the Scottish Government.  The School is one of the co-ordinators, represented by Professor Stephen Osborne.

Looking outside the School my main concern these days is the job prospects for my MBAs.  A bit of news from boston.com suggests that many MBAs across the Atlantic are adjusting their career aspirations.  As the big banks there have cut thousands of jobs  US MBA graduates expect to have to fight for the few positions available in finance.  Another issue of course is the newly minted MBAs will have to fight those that have been laid off, people with experience.  Things are not much different this side of the Atlantic so a very difficult time, even if we do try and increase the support from the School.
