News from the Dartmouth College Tuck School of Business

“On November 30, the Tuck faculty voted unanimously in favor of broadscale changes to Tuck’s foundational first-year core curriculum.

“These changes include an expanded orientation program to ensure students have an even richer and more vibrant start to their Tuck MBA experience; adjusted term lengths and new courses for Fall A and Fall B; a restructured winter term to allow for concentrated recruiting; a refined leadership framework; a new sequence of data analytics courses in Fall A and Fall B; and increased optionality with elective courses. Combined, these changes ensure that Tuck students continue to receive a truly exceptional first-year experience that academically is unquestionably up-to-date in both rigor and relevance.”

News from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business

I can easily default to speaking about my classes, the guest lectures I attend, and the student activity events I go to at night, but so much of the life of a Boothie are the random interactions, quick conversations, and group meetings.

“That inspired me to create this video to provide an inside look at some of the smaller details of the Booth experience. Watch Kalyan Ray-Mazumder, ’19, as he progresses through a day in the life of a Boothie.”

Is Full Employment Sustainable?

News from INSEAD

“The United States’ economy is a few months short of beating its longest expansion ever, which took place from March 1991 to March 2001. As we approach this milestone, there are increasing concerns about the possibility of a recession in the coming years.

“Do economic expansions die of old age? Empirical evidence suggests that there is no clear correlation between the length of an expansion and the probability of a recession.”
