ChiBus Continues

By Simon Tiu, Class of 2020

Fifty-five years ago, Joe, Jerry, Jack and Tim, a group of bright, young MBA students, met to form the Weekly Business Club Newsletter. The feeling of their articles resonates strongly across time: A lively discussion on "The Management of Automation" details concerns of finding "alternate jobs for displaced workers." Another article warns M&A practitioners to carefully consider how capital structure can be "considerably affected by unions." If Professor Morrissette recited these articles verbatim in M&A Strategy today, no one would blink an eye.

Not everything is the same though. For one, it turns out that our editorial predecessors were less circuitous when mentioning frosty beverages:

Ostensibly, the word mixer used to have a negative connotation as well. The possibly promiscuous semantics behind some other words are a mystery:

Some things change, some stay the same. At ChiBus, we still aim to please, but probably not in the same way as these young men to…  mermaids ?

The charming, odd adjacency of robust economic discussion and mermaids is, dare I say, pure Booth. In an environment of hypersensitivity, ChiBus is dedicated to bringing you the most relevant news balanced with irreverent humor and authentic stories from the Booth community. It’s my pleasure to introduce the incoming editorial board for ChiBus:

  • News: Nicole Campbell

  • People: Amy Pho

  • Opinion: Aanika Patel

  • Lifestyle: Krithika Narayan

  • Humor: Eshaan Puri

  • Evening/Weekend: Enxhi Zekthi

  • Marketing & Communications: Payal Motwani

As an editorial board, we are committed to the following three principles:

  1. We will provide content that encourages meaningful conversation and thoughtful communication.

  2. When reporting the news, we will provide independent and unbiased perspectives in a balanced manner.
