  1. Congratulations dear Dr Ravi Mehrotra for such a noble cause and associating your self with one of the most renowned university BU at Boston
    We really appreciate your considerations which will help society and businesses at large.

  2. I have high hopes for this initiative. No one doubts that business is essential to modern society. I just hope that everyone will remember that capitalism was at the root of colonialism and racism, and that while capitalism isn’t inherently evil, evil often results when capitalism isn’t sufficiently regulated.

  3. So grateful to Dr Ravi Mehrotra, B. U., and Questrom for your vision in creating this Business Institute. As a theologian and pastor, I’ve yearned for more conversations around capitalism, corporate America, and our mutual abilities and responsibilities to build ethical businesses that make the world a better place, even while building profitable enterprises. As an executive coach, I work with many leaders who yearn to craft this intersection of business, markets and society in ways that benefit all. Kudos to my beloved alma mater, Dr. Mehrotra, and Questrom for yet again leading the way in such important research and conversation.
