$1 million for Tuck

UBS Investment Bank gift reflects recruiting success

The Tuck School has received $1 million from UBS Investment Bank. To recognize this gift, Tuck will name its admissions office the UBS MBA  Admissions Suite. The funding follows UBS' recent  career development success at Tuck, which placed  it at the top of the financial services firms  recruiting at the school.

"The generosity of UBS has been outstanding," said Tuck Dean Paul Danos. "We are excited about our growing partnership with this corporation."

Danos referred to the current gift, but also to previous funding received from UBS to assist with  Tuck's Diversity Conference, the Finance Club,  various student case study competitions and orientation activities.

John P. Costas Tu '81, Chairman and CEO of UBS  Investment Bank and a member of Tuck's board of  overseers, said, "We are pleased to support the  Tuck School. UBS' contribution signifies that  Tuck is an important partner in the firm's commitment to attracting top-tier MBA talent."

UBS is a leading financial firm, combining  financial strength with a reputation for  innovation and a global culture that embraces  change. It is one of the world's largest wealth  managers, a premier investment banking and  securities firm and one of the largest global  asset managers. In Switzerland, UBS is a market  leader in retail and commercial banking.  Headquartered in Zurich and Basel, UBS employs  some 67,000 people, and has operations in over 50  countries and in all major financial centers.

Since its founding in 1900, the Tuck School of  Business at Dartmouth has been at the forefront of business education. Tuck's focus on its sole  degree-the MBA (also offered as a joint and dual  degree with other professional schools)-and small  class size ensure unparalleled access to a  renowned faculty and to educational resources.  The school's extensive executive education  program provides customized training to business  leaders in all sectors.
