The Tuck School of Business was ranked first in MBA employment rates for graduate business schools nationwide by Bloomberg Businessweek. Ninety-seven percent of graduates of the Tuck Class of 2010 reported job offers by three months after graduation, according to the article. Tuck officials attributed Tuck's success to administrators' anticipation of the effects of the financial crisis on firms' hiring practices and the implementation of programs to help students attract the attention of potential employers after graduation, according to a Tuck press release. As part of that effort, Tuck ensured that 100 percent of the class took part in internships in the summer of 2009. Both individual efforts by Tuck students and Dartmouth's strong alumni network were influential to the high employment rate, according to the release.

White males fill most leadership positions in major college athletic programs and conferences, according to a recent study by the University of Central Florida's Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sports, Inside Higher Ed reported Friday. Although a record high of 15 head coaches of color led teams in the Football Bowl Subdivision of the NCAA at the start of the 2010 season, the number represents only 12.5 percent of all FBS head coaches, according to the study, while all 11 FBS conference commissioners are white males. Women and people of color continue to face difficulty when seeking leadership positions in both institutions of higher education and college athletic programs, the study reported.
