AGI: Cecilia sets up shop

There must have been something in the water at La Cantina. No sooner has Marco set up a new business, Cecilia writes in that she just launched Accelerated Globalization Incorporated.

According to Cecilia, "We specialize in putting together presentations for C-Level executives, marketing & sales functions, financial services groups and consulting firms. We do anything from simple Powerpoint presentations to high-end animation pieces for advertising."

Who knew you could learn so much from Munter and Argenti?

To the Tuck Community:

I am pleased to announce that Tuck placed number two in this year's Wall Street Journal/Harris Interactive National ranking of business schools. This ranking is based on how recruiters rated each school on 21 attributes, their future plans to recruit at the school, and the number of survey respondents who said they had recruited recently at the school. The University of Michigan took the number one spot this year, a rank which Tuck has held in three of the six years this ranking has been published.

The Journal's report had many great things to say about Tuck and offered some good insights and information about what recruiters think of the other leading programs. One notable quote described students at Tuck as "an excellent mix of firepower, practical experience and humility."

Recruiters named Tuck among the top three schools in General Management, Strategy and Corporate Social Responsibility, and among the top ten in Marketing, Operations Management and Entrepreneurship. Of special significance, Tuck ranked as the top school for recruiting MBAs with high ethical standards. Tuck was also favorably ranked in terms of offering practical business experience as part of the program and generating graduates that are CEO material.

The top ten schools in the Journal's ranking include:

1. University of Michigan (Ross)
2. Dartmouth College (Tuck)
3. Carnegie Mellon University (Tepper)
4. Columbia University
5. University of California, Berkeley (Haas)
6. Northwestern University (Kellogg)
7. University of Pennsylvania (Wharton)
8. University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill (Kenan-Flagler)
9. Yale University
10. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Sloan)

As always, we are guided by our goal of offering the very best MBA experience in the world. Good rankings are merely a by-product of our efforts to give our students an outstanding educational experience, and rankings will never govern our efforts.

The full report appears in The Wall Street Journal Guide to the Top Business Schools 2007, published by Simon & Schuster. The special rankings report can be found online at For more information on all of the MBA program rankings, visit For a summary of Tuck's strategy,
