The Code

From the author of the Springboard, the book that is the backbone of the Wharton School’s renowned P3 program, The Conscience Code provides great insights into the concept of responsible leadership. It presents compelling talking points for professionals of all age groups, and I highly recommend it for young professionals, especially those considering career advancement through MBA and other leadership development programs.

Throwback Thursday!!! Take a look at Wharton from 33 years ago this week. Course match was conducted in person in a tent, the rugby team vowed to out drink its opposition (not much has changed), and grade non-disclosure was apparently not a thing since a B in CorpFin apparently wouldn't get you a BCG interview
