"I look back on my decision to attend SOM as one of the better decisions I have made in my life..." LEE MERGY, Yale SOM '92 Partner, Marakon Associates
This past year, we have seen problems of failed corporate governance not only at publicly traded companies like Enron and World Com, but at nonprofits like the United Way of Washington DC. In fact, given the absence of a take-over market and the complexity of the product of most nonprofits, the role of governance in insuring good performance is heightened among nonprofits.
Sign up in the OSA for an appointment.
Dean Jeffrey E. Garten will kick off Yale's 2002 United Way Campaign on Tuesday, October 8 at 5 p.m. at Donaldson Commons dining hall, 140 Prospect Street.

Bossidy has just written a book on the execution of strategy, and he is going to talk about some of his experiences in running major global companies. He is known as one of the most effective CEOs of the last two decades.
