“Tuck made me more comfortable in my own shoes, and more aware of how I can impact change in the organizations around me.”
When I was looking at MBA programs, one of my friends kept insisting that I look at Tuck. I didn’t want to live in a big city because I knew how little community interaction there is in such environments. When I visited Hanover and Tuck, I just felt like it was the right place.
I remembered the amazing hospitality from when I attended Tuck’s Diversity Conference—everyone made me feel at home. When I got here, I wanted to pay that forward by helping out with the Diversity Conference and our Small Group Dinners. At Tuck, it’s possible to really get to know your classmates and professors in ways that it isn’t at other schools.
Tuck gives you the opportunity to really immerse yourself in the community. The relationships you make here are truly for life, and everybody’s willing to take that extra step to make international students feel at home. I think that’s pretty important, especially for someone in the U.S. for the first time.
I’m ready to take my next professional step thanks to the help I got from alums, classmates, professors, and everyone else here. I knew coming in that I wanted to do consulting, and the support I’ve received has been extraordinary. That’s typical of Tuck. The feedback we got across the class from our summer experiences was how good Tuck students are at working in teams. That’s one of the most important ways Tuck prepares us to be successful.
