Dean Danos on the new European Advisory Board

[The following message was sent recently to the Tuck Community.]

I was in Europe last week [week of November 14] along with a number of Tuck administrators to launch our European Advisory Board.

Sunday and Monday involved an accreditation review of ESSEC, a Grande Ecole in Paris, as part of its accreditation renewal.  On Tuesday night we held a reception for 45 or so alumni, prospective students, and other friends of Tuck at the Automobile Club in Paris featuring remarks on the global economy by Professor Andy Bernard who is Director of Tuck’s Center for International Business.

The Dean of the Tuck School of Business with the new European Advisory Board at their first meeting in Zurich on Nov. 17, 2011.

On Thursday at the headquarters of Swarovski outside of Zurich, we had the inaugural meeting of our European Advisory Board with members attending from across Europe. Comprised of eighteen highly-accomplished alumni living and working in Europe, the Board’s mission is to provide advice and perspective on Tuck’s strategy for Europe. The Board heard briefings on admissions, career development, global education at Tuck, executive education, public relations, and the activities of the centers for international business and digital strategies. They engaged in a lively discussion and offered numerous ideas on how to enhance Tuck’s European strategy for recruiting  the best students, opening up additional job opportunities, expanding options for European-focused student projects and courses, and continuing to build our brand image in Europe.

That evening, the board joined other European alumni for a dinner with comments from Professor Andy Bernard speaking about how the basic principles covered in the Global Economics for Managers core course give insights into the current financial crises.

We are very encouraged by this new advisory board and we are planning to add boards in Asia and Latin America in the years ahead.

Have a great holiday season.

Paul Danos, Dean
