B-School Students Screen Pitches for “Shark Tank”

Real estate mogul Barbara Corcoran has figured out a novel way to get someone else to do her leg work, says the New York Post. While a contestant on the reality show “Shark Tank,” she enlisted a group of Columbia Business School students to research what companies she should invest in. Initially, they were offered extra credit for their extensive research but those who continued on after school was out are making $500 per parcel of advice. Say Corcoran: “They take my deals, slice them up, chop them apart, do the due diligence and spit it back, and they get graded on it. It is real life.”
