Elitist America Set to Help Open Yale’s New School of Management

Yale University will launch its new school of management next month with a high-profile weekend of elitists as participants.

Arianna Huffington of The Huffington Post, former Federal Reserve chairman Paul A. Volcker and Robert Rubin, co-chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations will be in attendance.

Volcker and Rubin will be part of the panel on the global financial system. Also on the panel will be Sheila C. Bair, former chairman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.; Gary Gensler, chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission; and Robert B. Zoellick, former president of the World Bank Group.

Huffington will appear on a panel about health care innovation.

The new building has an enclosed courtyard, a library, 16 classrooms, a student gym, a 350-seat auditorium and a lecture hall with an outdoor terrace.

Classes are set to begin in the new building Jan. 13.

  1. Wouldn't it be fun to slip some anticollectivism into their "community of broad-minded, intellectually curious students, faculty, and alumni"?

  2. It's by the way that the school isn't new; it's history can be traced to a bequest received by Yale in 1971 from the estate of Frederick W. Beinecke, PhB 1909. “ 'Business and government are growing more interrelated,' an early admissions catalog said, 'requiring effective managers in each sector, public and private, to understand in depth the goals and operations of the other.' "

    "In 1994 the school changed its name to the Yale School of Management."

    Note also the remark about "the Global Network for Advanced Management, a network of business schools".
