Effective October 1, 2019, the Naval Postgraduate
School in Monterey, California, changed the name
of its Graduate School of Business and Public Policy
to the Graduate School of Defense Management.
According to dean Keith Snider, this new
name better signals to the school’s stakeholders its
defense-focused identity and mission. The Graduate
School of Defense Management offers MBA,
EMBA, and MSc in management degrees, as well as
several specialized certificates.
Starting this year, all students in the Master in
Management (MiM) Grande Ecole program at HEC
Paris in France will follow the Purposeful Leadership
track throughout their studies, thanks to the
Joly Family Endowed Chair in Purposeful Leadership.
First-year students will have opportunities
to engage in reflection at the island commune of
Mont Saint-Michel; practice teamwork with the
French army; and question the societal purpose for
organizations in the mountain town of Chamonix,
an area particularly vulnerable to global warming.
The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania
in Philadelphia has launched Wharton
Business Daily, a morning show that will air
weekdays on SiriusXM Channel 132. The show will
focus on both topical news stories and emerging
trends. The Wharton School has also announced
that its publishing arm is changing its name from
Wharton Digital Press to Wharton School Press.
The press was launched in 2011 with the goal of
leveraging emerging digital publishing technologies.
The change underscores the Wharton School
name, which the press acknowledges is one of its
key selling points.
