The Graduate Management Admission Council Welcomes Three New Business Schools to Its Global Membership
The Schools Bring Innovative Approaches and Global Perspectives to the Council
RESTON, Va., Oct. 04, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), a nonprofit organization of leading graduate business schools, is pleased to welcome three new graduate business schools to its membership. The addition of McGill University, Desautels Faculty of Management (Canada); University of Mannheim, Mannheim Business School (Germany); and University of St. Gallen (Switzerland) brings the Council's total membership to 223.
Select business schools are invited to join GMAC by its Board of Directors. To be considered, they must complete a comprehensive application that addresses the school's sustained commitments to supporting the Council's mission: providing the tools and information necessary for schools and talent to discover and evaluate each other.
"Graduate business schools throughout the world have a robust history of offering quality education and preparing students for their careers," said Sangeet Chowfla, president and CEO of GMAC. "We are now seeing increased globalization of high quality business education serving the needs of diverse communities around the world. These three schools are recognized leaders in graduate management education in their respective regions. The insights and best practices these schools bring will better our understanding about the mutual selection process and help further our mission and ability to inform, involve and convene the global business education community around issues of common interest."
In addition to meeting membership criteria, each school has made specific pledges to help the Council meet its mission:
McGill University, Desautels Faculty of Management
The Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University is committed to sharing expertise on the integration of teaching, research and practice, and applying a multi-disciplinary approach to problem-solving. The institution will also provide the Council with insights on developing specialized Masters programs, building an international educational experience, and the overall Canadian business school environment.
University of Mannheim, Mannheim Business School
Because Mannheim has an extensive academic network around the world and is very closely connected to the business world (both multinationals and German companies), the institution will provide the Council with its perspective and expertise on how to develop talent for the future and enhance GMAC products, services and programs.
University of St. Gallen
The University of St. Gallen will provide the Council with valuable and relevant insights from Switzerland and Central Europe, an expanding market for the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) exam and other GMAC services. With its vision to promote integrative thought, to encourage responsible action and to support an entrepreneurial spirit of innovation in business, St. Gallen remains committed to contributing to the global society.
The Graduate Management Admission Council was founded in 1953 when nine leading business schools joined together to create a standardized business school admissions assessment, the GMAT exam. Working closely with its expanding membership base, the Council has developed a reputation for world-class industry research, valuable insights and professional events for the global graduate management education community.
Membership in the Council is school-based and by invitation only. To be considered, schools must maintain a selective admissions process and offer a master's program in business administration, management subjects or equivalent. Member schools are expected to actively support the Council's mission and use the GMAT exam or other GMAC assessments as part of their admissions and enrollment processes. They also participate in Council governance, including voting on Board elections and other matters that may come before the Council.

Novel Preclinical Research Tools Provide Humanized Immune Response to Advance Immunotherapeutic Development, Live Webinar Hosted by Crown Bioscience19.10.2017 14:00 | Pressmeddelande
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Crown Bioscience, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Crown Bioscience International (TWSE:ticker 6554) and a global drug discovery and development services company providing translational platforms to advance oncology, inflammation, cardiovascular and metabolic disease research, announces a live webinar to be presented by Dr. Michelle Mack, Director of Global Scientific Engagement, entitled "Beyond Syngeneics - Novel Tools for Addressing Human Specificity in Immuno-Oncology."

Crown Bioscience has generated innovative research models to address these obstacles early during preclinical drug development.
Perfectus Aluminum Inc. Responds to Trade Group19.10.2017 13:00 | Pressmeddelande
ONTARIO, Calif., Oct. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Perfectus Aluminum Inc. has issued the following: On October 12, 2017 the Aluminum Extruders Council (AEC), an industry group representing largely American aluminum extruders, posted to its blog a false narrative regarding a suit to which Perfectus Aluminum Inc. is a related party. The government is not "seeking unpaid duties from Perfectus for goods brought into the country." Rather, the government is attempting to use a 2017 Department of Commerce determination to assess retroactive antidumping duties on goods imported as early as 2011. It is discouraging that AEC would tout such an obviously egregious government overstep as a "victory" to their members and the industry: were it one of AEC's own members facing such an obvious violation of fair play and due process, it would rightfully argue that government overreach is a threat to manufacturers everywhere. In addition to the hypocrisy of the AEC's promotion of this case, its s
