“For me, business school was a launch pad to a new career.”
For me, business school was a launch pad to a new career. Tuck was the best fit because it’s a small school with lots of opportunities to take on leadership roles in extracurricular activities, and a reputation for excellence in general management. Since I wanted to work in renewable energy, I joined a First-Year Project related to energy, helped lead the Dartmouth Energy Collaborative, and worked with classmates to persuade the school to offer a class on energy finance. All of that translated into skills, experience, and commitment I could show to recruiters, which has paid off.
