Classroom Technology

Luis G - T'13, April 18, 2012

Prior to Tuck, I never put much thought into what I should expect in terms of technology in the classroom.  For me, technology is important because I feel it’s a good way for professors to give a subject more life.  For example, professors can play videos Continue Reading

One of the great things about being up in Hanover is that when executives come to visit or to help lead a case discussion in a class, they come up here for more than just that. You see, when you come to Hanover you can’t exactly just swing Continue Reading 


The Eighteenth

Ken F. T'12, April 01, 2012

My wife said to me this weekend that our class gift should be to name the 18th hole at Hanover Country Club after the Tuck Class of 2012. I kind of like the juxtaposed frivolity and endurance of her idea. And it got me thinking: the Tuck MBA is quite a Continue Reading
