CEIBS Associate Professor of Finance Frank Yu earned his Ph.D. in Finance at the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business under the mentorship of Professor Richard Thaler, who was just named as the winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics in early October, 2017. Inspired by Thaler, one of Prof. Yu’s areas of research interest is behavioural finance.

Social entrepreneurs often struggle to reconcile the typical business survival issues faced by a startup with wanting to truly benefit those they are trying to help; more often than not the two are at cross-purposes. The lessons that Siva Devireddy learned in his entrepreneurial journey developing GoCoop, India’s first online and mobile-based two-sided platform that connects rural handloom weavers and artisans with urban markets in India and abroad, are summarized in a new paper by CEIBS Professor of Entrepreneurship S. Ramakrishna Velamuri that has been published by The European Business Review.

Anthropology tells us that the human concept of ‘soul’ dates back to between 25,000 and 50,000 years ago. Since then, we have kept exploring the very essence of soul: either physically or intellectually, out of superstitious belief or for scientific exploration. Interpretations of soul find expression in ancient Chinese classics, articles and poems. For example a line from the Verses of Chu, penned by the statesman Qu Yuan during the Warring States Period, says: “Yet within my soul I burned to return; Not a moment passed, but I longed to go back.” In Han Dynasty scholar Cai Yong’s Inscription on the Tablet of Hu Shuo, Chief of Chenliu Prefecture he writes: “With my soul wandering, I have nothing to depend upon.” And in the poem Song of the Precious Sword Qiu Jin, a revolutionary in the late Qing Dynasty, says: “The emboldening song of the precious sword awakens the sleeping souls of the conquered nation.”
