Paganucci Fellows Study the Microfinance Industry
paganucciThe Paganucci Fellows Program is a unique opportunity for Dartmouth students to take part in a collaborative societal leadership program being offered by the Tuck School of Business. In general, the program supports Tuck's efforts to study complex social issues and how businesses can create positive social and financial value; in effect, the "double bottom line."

The topic for year one of the program is microfinance as a vehicle for alleviating global poverty. During the summer of 2007, the Fellows identified, collected, and synthesized information and resources about the microfinance industry with the guidance and support of Professors Andrew Bernard and Richard McNulty. Their survey results, research findings, and white paper are now being used by MBA students at Tuck taking a newly designed course on "Societal Leadership: Microfinance and Economic Development " taught by Professors Bernard and McNulty. We recently had an opportunity to interview this distinguished group of students. Listen in as they share their key findings. (Interview by MBA Fellow Srivatsa Desikamani T'08) More on the Societal Leadership Course.

Tuck Speaker Making Headlines

The New York Times recently published an article on the reassignment of Nigeria's top anti-corruption official, police investigator Nuhu Ribadu, to a yearlong course at a remote training center. This comes on the heels of Ribadu's recent arrest of James Ibori, a powerful former governor of an oil-rich state who was accused of stealing more than $85 million and who was instrumental in helping the country's new president, Umaru Yar'Adua win an election in April. This action has been condemned by many Ribadu and anti-corruption supporters, prompting a statement from U.S. Senator Russ Feingold. In his statement, Feingold indicates that Ribadu has elected to step down from his post rather than accept the reassignment.

Mr. Ribadu was a featured speaker at Tuck's International Forum 2007: Confronting Corruption in Global Business. For a full copy of the NYT article, click here. For a copy of Senator Feingold's statement, click here. For more information on the Tuck conference on corruption, click here.
