This concerns your newspaper’s headline story, “UP Dean lies to honor Virata,” which appears on 7 June 2013, and written by Mr. Rigoberto Tiglao. In that story Tiglao accuses me of two “lies” to wit: l) “No George Baker Graduate School of Business at Harvard ever exists” and 2) “the naming of business schools after a distinguished person is (not) widespread in US universities.”
On the first “lie”, kindly ask Mr. Tiglao to look up the Harvard Business School website (http://www.library.hbs.edu/hc/buildinghbs/the-dedication.html) that the official name of the School is “Harvard Graduate School of Business Administration, George F. Baker Foundation”.
On the second “lie”, our survey in the Internet of 333 American Schools / Colleges of Business Conducted in August 2012 shows that almost fifty four (54) percent (or 179) are named. C1″ the Darden School of Business is one of the 179.)
