comment What does “Graduates from business school or Economics with mathematical background” mean?

comment What is the meaning of “tap dance to work”?
See also "laughing all the way to the bank", which comes from (bizarrely enough, cf. "I could care less") from "crying all the way to the bank". English is weird.
