• Why Tuck?

    When I started at Tuck, I thought I’d have leadership nailed down because of my Army experience, but it wasn’t as easy as I expected. The military clearly defines the structure of leadership and creates a foundation for leaders to build on; everyone has similar expectations. But my Tuck classmates come from different
    organizational structures—flat, hierarchical, matrix, small-team—so I learned that the greatest leadership challenges lie in the diversity of the team. Exposure to situational leadership experiences is an intentional process at Tuck, and it has made me a more confident leader. I become more committed to leadership as I continue to witness the power of the team.
