Tuck: From Strength to Strength

When a school is on a roll, its name crops up in a positive light everywhere, like this Wall Street Journal article:

It also helps that in many ways, Amazon is a Dartmouth shop, spearheaded by Board of Trustees member Jeff Blackburn ‘91. Here is an except from his Board bio:

Jeff Blackburn ‘91 is currently Senior Vice President of Business Development and Digital Entertainment at Amazon.com. He leads the teams responsible for Amazon’s content and advertising businesses including Prime Video, Amazon Studios, IMDb, Amazon Music, and Prime Photos. Jeff is also the head of Amazon’s M&A, investments and strategic business development efforts worldwide. He worked on the IPO for Amazon and has helped build the company for over 19 years, reporting to Jeff Bezos and part of Amazon’s Senior Leadership Team since 2006.

Jeff probably needs the services of a competent MBA or two now and again.
