“I use my math major every day,” Jeff Immelt ’78, General Electric CEO and a Dartmouth trustee tells Business Insider. He says the knowledge he gained as an undergraduate is more valuable than his MBA degree. “My intellectual curiosity goes more toward problem solving than spreadsheets. … I can view every situation as a problem to be solved, and I’ve never lost my passion for that as I’ve grown in my career.”
