“Tuck has challenged and inspired me to explore and grow beyond
what I ever imagined was possible.”

Read My Story


Prior to Tuck, I attended a liberal arts school, worked in public policy research institutions, and then transitioned into early-stage tech startups. I came here to get the tools I needed to combine my passion for technology with hardcore business fundamentals. When I visited Tuck, I saw that the school, the professors, and the structure of its MBA program are all focused on developing exactly the kind of professional and leader that I want to be: competitive, collaborative, thoughtful, and impactful.


Your two years at Tuck will fly by. It will be full of hard work, big challenges, exciting opportunities, and amazing people. Remember to keep perspective—it’s as important to take advantage of the various social and extracurricular activities offered by our community as it is to capitalize on academic and networking opportunities. To get the most out of this experience, find what balance works for you.


One of the benefits of Tuck’s close-knit community is our vibrant extracurricular scene. From on-campus clubs to educational initiatives to admissions interviews to formal student government roles, there’s no shortage of ways to get involved here. If you have a passion or interest for which there is not yet a club, Tuck students are always willing and interested in trying new things. If you build it, they will come!


Tuck has not only given me the tools to combine my love of technology and business, but I also now have access to friends, mentors, and resources in all corners of the world. There is nothing stronger than the fabric of the Tuck community and network.
