Busy School Open For First Civilians Since 1942 Class

Teele Named to Dean's Staff As Enrollment Jumps to 376

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

With its administrative staff augmented by the addition of Stanley F. Teele as associate dean, the Business School emerged from its wartime hibernation Wednesday, admitting its first civilian class since 1942. The enrollment of 376 includes 288 veterans.

Dean Teele's appointment was announced Tuesday by President Conant. Formerly a professor of Business Administration, Dean Teele served during the war as a confidential assistant to Donald Nelson on the War Production Board.

Wartime years saw the school virtually monopolized by courses for the armed services under the civilian staff. In the nine separately organized programs, 13,000 men received specialized training.

Courses Revised

With the reopening of the school to civilians, many Business School courses have been revised and augmented. All first year offerings have been brought together in one unit known as Elements of Business Administration, which will form a pre-requisite to the second year program.

Another innovation is a course in Advanced Management created to serve as a refresher and retrainer for business executives. Designed to last 13 weeks, the course has already drawn 70 business men, who are registered in addition to the regular school enrollment.

Under the new rules of admission, which have been expanded and liberalized to meet the unprecedented flood of candidates, many war veterans have been given special privileges, such as the waiving of college degrees, which are customarily required for entrance.
