Succeeding in Corporate America: The Experience of Jewish M.B.A.'s

By Samuel Z. Klausner

American Jewish Committee (AJC), 1988

This publication deals with the status of Jews in the corporate world. Samuel Z. Klausner and his research team find that the old question of whether there is discrimination against Jews is no longer adequate to deal with a complex reality. This study shows that the focus on performance in a highly competitive economy has meant an expanding role for Jews in American industry and finance. To be sure, discrimination has not disappeared, nor are all businesses and economic sectors fully open to Jews. But Klausner concludes that the way Jews act in and are acted upon by the business world can no longer be viewed in the somewhat simplistic terms of earlier years. The greater integration of Jews in the business world and into the broader society may be a mixed blessing. While it has improved their position in American life, it has also weakened their Jewish identity and the culture of the Jewish community itself.
