Tuck and Pepperdine – Two of the USA’s leading schools have developed business education programmes specifically targeted at women. Pepperdine’s ‘Morning MBA’ programme, will take place at the school’s two campuses, in Los Angeles and Irvine, California. Linda Livingstone, dean of the Graziadio school at Pepperdine, says there are tens of thousands of women with a bachelor degree and several years of business experience who left the workforce to start a family “The Morning MBA programme will enable these women to re-enter the workforce with their MBA and a new skill set focused on leadership and addressing real-world business problems. We also will be providing significant career resources support including personal executive career coaching throughout the programme.”

At Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, Tuck has launched its latest executive programme, “Back in Business: Invest in Your Return” which it believes will be particularly attractive to mothers returning to work. The programme comprises four modules taught over an 11-day period in Hanover, New Hampshire, and New York City. Career planning and facilitating the process of re-entry into the workforce will be important aspects of the programme, which will take place in October 2006.

London Business School - Lehman Brothers, the global investment bank, has agreed to a five-year sponsorship commitment to establish and develop the Lehman Brothers Centre for Women in Business at London Business School. The Centre will seek to transform business education and practice, as well as serve as a springboard for the launching of new ideas and act as a forum for debate and discussion. Most importantly, it will aim to provide solutions for the challenges that businesses face in attracting and retaining talented women. The research agenda for the Centre will begin with a benchmarking exercise on the topic of women in business in Europe.

LBS has also announced four new Deutsche Bank Women's Scholarships for women on full-time MBA and Masters in Finance programmes. Women students with an interest in the financial services industry, who are successful in their application for the scholarship, will be awarded £20,000 towards their fees. The first scholarships will be awarded to students enrolling from September 2006.

Rotterdam School of Management - Every year the Executive MBA class at RSM selects a charity and aims to raise money for that charity to coincide with their graduation. This year, the class has chosen the Dutch children’s charity KIKA (acronym for Kinderen Kankervrij - cancer–free children) as their recipient charity and aim to have more than € 10,000. Fundraising activities include EMBA 05 candidate Maarten Post cycling 80 Kilometres to his own Executive MBA graduation and the whole class selling the special KIKA Teddy Bears to friends, family and colleagues.

Stanford - George Habash, a militant and former secretary-general of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, once characterised terrorism as a "thinking man's game." Using mathematics, researchers at Stanford University's Center for International Security and Cooperation (CISAC) have made fighting terrorism a thinking man's game as well. CISAC affiliate Lawrence M. Wein of the Graduate School of Business and CISAC Science Fellow Jonathan D. Farley are both applying mathematical models to homeland security problems, such as preventing a nuclear detonation in a major U.S. city and determining whether terrorist cells have likely been disrupted. Wein, who teaches operations classes about different business processes used to deliver goods and services, has focused his research on bioterrorism and border issues. He has performed, he says, the first mathematical analyses of hypothetical botulism poisoning, anthrax outbreaks and smallpox infections. "One overriding theme of my work is that all these homeland security problems are operations problems," said Wein, the Paul E. Holden Professor of Management Science. "Just as McDonald's needs to get hamburgers out in a rapid and defect-free manner, so too does the government have to get vaccines and antibiotics out and test the borders for nuclear weapons or terrorists in a rapid and defect-free manner."

Manchester - The distance learning arm of Manchester Business School has launched an MBA specifically designed for professionals working in the construction industry.
