Jeffrey R. Immelt, chairman and CEO of General Electric Co., spoke to a capacity audience in Call Auditorium, Nov. 12, during a daylong visit to Cornell.

Immelt's talk, geared toward MBA students, was also simulcast to five other business schools: Columbia University, Indiana University, University of Texas-Austin (McCombs), University of Michigan (Ross) and Duke University (Fuqua). Among other things, he had this advice for MBA students about to enter careers: "Follow your heart, be a learner, have courage and care about people."
