Hampton U Business School Dean Doubles Down on Dreadlock and Cornrows Ban
We’ve previously reported on the Hampton University business school’s no-dreadlock-or-cornrows policy for students in a five-year MBA program who take the seminar class.
Although the outrage over the policy continues, the school has once again doubled down.
Business School Dean Sid Credle believes the ban has been effective in helping his students land corporate jobs.
“We’ve been very successful. We’ve placed more than 99 percent of the students who have graduated from this school, this program,” said Credle.
“These students choose to be in this program and aspire to be leaders in the business world. We model these students after the top African-Americans in the business world,” said HU spokesperson Naima Ford.
Credle said it’s important for students to look the part when looking for a job.
