10 most popular business schools (U.S. News & World Report)

Harvard is no longer the most popular business school. At least, not when you look at the school’s conversion rate. Five other public business schools jumped onto the most-popular list this year, pushing out programs such as Columbia Business School and the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. Those schools include Oregon State University, which enrolled 81.5 percent of its accepted students for fall 2012

Needed: Breakup of physician, drug company relationship (Science Blog)

In one of the first reports of its type – titled “Breaking Up is Hard to Do” – researchers from Oregon State University, Oregon Health & Science University and the University of Washington outlined the deliberate process that one central Oregon medical clinic went through to remove drug company representatives from their practice.

Entrepreneurs need to balance risk of persisting with payoff of succeeding (Phys.Org)

Students showcase their projects at OSU Engineering Expo (Gazette-Times)

People who visited the Engineering Expo 2013 at Oregon State University on Friday might have learned it is not that easy for a small country with research nuclear reactors to create plutonium for a nuclear bomb. They could have smelled coffee that had been brewed using solar power or observed an artificial intelligence software program win a strategy game. (see also KVAL)
