Christine Spadafor returned to Dartmouth's renowned Tuck School of Business this week — with a busy schedule of meetings, mentoring and teaching. Ms. Spadafor lectures in the Tuck School's Alan Smith Visiting Executive Program.
During her Tuck School visit, Ms. Spadafor met with both new Dean Matthew Slaughter and former Dean Paul Danos, who retired this year after serving for twenty years as Tuck School Dean. She also met informally with business students, including a small-group seminar with Tuck's "Women in Business Group".
The Tuck School's Visiting Executive Program is headed by Professor Sydney Finkelstein — a highly regarded thought leader on leadership and strategy who is listed in the "World's Top 25 Leadership Gurus." A Fellow of the Academy of Management, Professor Finkelstein is the author of 17 books and 75 articles. For this most recent collaboration Ms. Spadafor and Professor Finkelstein co-taught an updated case study on board of directors dynamics.
This week's visit marked Christine Spadafor's sixth appearance at the Tuck School of Business. Dartmouth's Tuck School is consistently named among America's top business schools. Last year (2014) The Economist awarded Tuck the #2 ranking in its selection of the best full-time MBA programs in the world.
