“Tuck was exactly what I wanted in a business school—a relentless focus on individuals committed to developing their communities and, ultimately, the world.”
While working in China, I experienced firsthand the challenges of building a multinational business. I discovered an added level of complexity between local managers and U.S. colleagues based solely on cultural differences. It was a wake-up call: leaders need to comprehend organizations in human terms. My first encounter with Tuck convinced me they understood this too. It was clear right away that Tuck comprehended who I was—my situation, my aspirations. The interviewer explained what Tuck offered me and then talked about what I could offer my classmates. This was exactly what I wanted in a business school—a relentless focus on individuals committed to developing their communities and, ultimately, the world. I’m barely one year into my experience here, and I can’t express the difference Tuck has already made in my life.
