Some of you might have read the book "What They Don't Teach You At Harvard Business School" where the writer Mark McCormack delved into the realities of the business world, things that you don't learn at business schools.The street knowledge that comes from day-to-day experience of running a business and managing people.The pitfalls that they don't tell you.I presume that's why the Chinese are more successful in business, they don't go by the book, they have entrepreneurial instinct.
McCormack never studied in Harvard, he got a law degree from Yale.Most of what he wrote in the book were based on his personal experience running a business.
More on our flamboyant ostentatious big spender who reputedly studied at the highly reputable Wharton Business School at University of Pennsylvania.
Wharton is the oldest business school in the US, is a member of the Ivy League and rated the No.1 business school in the world.In 2010 London Business School took the top spot.Harvard, better known here, is only second best.
Somebody, should write "What They Don't Teach You at Wharton Business School." How not to blow $160,000 in one night's party bash.
How not to be an obsequious sychophant and blow your money just to be seen sitting with those slimy and stony celebrities.How not to blow your father's money.Has to be, unless Najib gave him multi-million-dollar contract?

Asian financier looks to take on collection of luxe Manhattan apartmentsNovember 05, 2009 09:20AM
An Asian financier calling himself "J. Lo" is reportedly looking to buy up luxe apartments in Manhattan's premier buildings with haste. Lo, who is currently renting a $100,000-per-month condo at West 56th Street's Park Imperial, counting neighbors like Daniel Craig, Sean "Diddy" Combs and Deepak Chopra, also recently signed a contract at the Park Laurel on West 63rd Street. He is reported to have paid nearly $28 million for the 7,758-square-foot spot that belonged to Israeli philanthropist Ephraim Gildor. Lo hasn't made an offer yet on the $31 million penthouse he visited at Trump Park Avenue, but he did bid almost $40 million on Broadcast.com founder Todd Wagner's apartment at the Time Warner Center, which, unfortunately for Lo, isn't actually for sale. Wagner bought the 4,800-square-foot penthouse, once famously rented by Jay-Z, from real estate investor Michael Hirtenstein in 2007. Observers have noticed Lo's black Cadillac Escalades idling outside his current rental, where he's had shopping bags from Bergdorf Goodman delivered to his door. [Post, 1st item]My latest grapevine revealed he is not Najib and Rosmah's friend.He is Najib's son friend.

So, no MBA, only ordinary business degree, only 27 years old and can become advisers to so many companies.Bet your bottom dollar all those companies are under the same stable.
Looks like, Sarawak a major contributor to Mr Lo's lifestyle.
