News of the Columbia Business School graduation remarks by PepsiCo president Indra Nooyi has reached India via the Times of India (here and here). The Times of India perceptively notes the “damage control” undertaken by PepsiCo.
Has the news reached the Times of New York? No such luck. Today’s New York Sun, however, carries a brief report on Nooyi’s remarks by Christina Rogers (here). Rogers tracked down Columbia MBA ’05 Wes Martin for a quote: “My family had flown a great distance and spent a large sum of money to come celebrate this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and were quite disturbed that the president and CFO of a U.S.-based company made such a comparison at a business school ceremony.”
