Factors impacting the transition of OIC Countries | Dr. Walid Hejazi | Rotman School of Management
The fifty-seven member countries that form the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) account for twenty-three percent of the world's population, yet less than eleven percent of the world's total GDP. Why?
With the projected rise in the Muslim population, OIC member countries must do more to ensure accompanying GDP per capita growth. As a first step towards identifying growth opportunities for OIC member countries, three MBA students; Abhishek Chaudhary, Omer Saleem, Ash Zare, under the supervision of Prof. Hejazi at the Rotman School of Management, created an extensive central database with 170 world economic indicators amongst 230 countries spanning a period of 38 years, in order to benchmark OICs against other regions of the world and find reasons behind the lag.
This webinar will introduce you to the database and take you through some of the project's research findings which outline opportunities within social, institutional and financial arenas.

The Mistakes CFOs Make | Dr. Henri Servaes London Business School
This document is the soft copy of the presentation by Dr. Henri Servaes. The role of a financial manager has changed dramatically over the past 10-15 years. The tools and securities available to analyse alternatives and manage risks have increased exponentially. At the same time, financial managers have become more knowledgeable about modern financial theory, its applications, and its shortcomings. All of this has occurred simultaneous to an increasing awareness of how much finance and risk management might add to the value of a firm and the importance, at least as perceived by the CFO, to communicate with financial markets and encourage share price strength. Nevertheless, while financial managers have clearly become better at doing their jobs, a number of mistakes are still commonly made. Some of these have to do with the skills of the managers, others permeate throughout the organisation and are based on misconceptions in the CEO's office and the boardroom. This session will discuss the changes that occurred and highlight some of these problems. Amongst other topics it will consider poor knowledge of cost of capital and how it affects valuation, financial inertia, the risks of turning the treasury into a profit centre, obsession with credit ratings and misspecification of M&A goals.
