"Tuck was quite progressive in its approach. It was complete immersion, with an emphasis on teamwork that establishes an environment where people feel they're all in it together," recalls Adam Godfrey. "This process may not exist at other schools. My selfish wish is for Tuck to continue to be regarded as one of the top business schools. That's good for me; and it's good for the school."
As an English major from Brown working as an analyst at Morgan Stanley, Godfrey felt confident that he could do the work required of him but less confident that he fully understood its theoretical underpinnings. So he applied to Tuck. As a student, he valued Tuck's small size and the "real access" he had to good teachers, who included Tuck faculty and members of the broader Tuck community.
"I have very strong memories of executives who were Tuck alumni coming to the school, participating in classes, and sharing their experiences," he says. "I got a lot out of that." He's returned the favor on several occasions, coming to campus to speak to Tuck classes on finance and on private equity and entrepreneurship.
Adam Godfrey is a partner with the private equity firm Lindsay Goldberg.

A perennial TAG contributor, Adam supported the Investing in Excellence capital campaign.
