“There are three rules to successful leadership,” says Dave Adams T’08, recalling an old joke. “Rule No. 1: surround yourself with a great team … and I can’t remember the other two.’” Adams says accomplishing the first rule has been easy at Tuck, thanks to the school’s unique take on leadership education and the amount of resources it devotes to it. “Tuck provides leadership opportunities I didn’t think I’d find in an academic setting,” says Adams, including student-run conferences like the school’s annual Business & Society Conference, which he chaired during his second year at Tuck. “I am a much more well-rounded leader because of my time here.”
