Economics and Business Alumni Magazine
October 2010

Welcome to the first 'online only' edition of the faculty's alumni magazine, E&B Connect.

This issue replaces the printed edition that you would normally have received with the spring edition of the Sydney Alumni Magazine (SAM). However, in line with the distribution of SAM we have only produced three printed editions of E&B Connect in 2010 and have decided to increase our online content for your further interest.

Topics covered in this edition are:

Dean's Message - Professor Peter Wolnizer introduces our first online only edition of E&B Connect.

Recognising Women in Business - a review of the faculty's inaugural Women in Business Dinner which was held in August 2010 in partnership with The Women's College.

No Payne, No Gain - profile of alumnus Corey Payne (BCom '07) and his latest project the Future Direction Network, which aims to improve participation rates in tertiary education among young people from Sydney's south-west.

Hungry Minds - participants of the University of Sydney's innovative Global Executive MBA (EMBA) program have tackled the enormous issue of feeding millions of hungry Australians in a project for not-for-profit agency, Foodbank New South Wales.

Let the games begin - Dr Nick Wailes (PhD '04) the faculty's Acting Global EMBA Program Director updates us on the latest module being taken by our Global EMBA participants in Bangalore, India.

Mission Impossible? - a review of the Powered by Research breakfast forum hosted in July by the faculty's Accounting Discipline which highlighted the need for more thoughtful structuring and auditing processes of Australian corporate groups.

Business Intelligence - short alumni updates and news from across the Faculty.

The next printed edition of E&B Connect will be sent out with your Sydney Alumni Magazine (SAM) in November 2010. If you do not receive this SAM mailing with E&B Connect included, please contact me to ensure that we have your current contact details on file.

Please send us through any feedback or thoughts for future editions of E&B Connect. The magazine is for you, our alumni, and we would like to build the content around issues and updates that you would like to hear more about.

With best wishes,
