“I wanted a varied experience that would take me outside my comfort zone and prepare me to deal with anything.”
Who would imagine that a teacher could bring market research to life? Or how easy it is at Tuck to engage with businesses around the globe, to continue my international education both through my courses and interaction with fellow students? When I decided to pursue a new career, I considered other schools with top reputations in marketing. But I was looking for more than just great marketing skills. I wanted an experience different from any other I'd had—one that would take me outside my comfort zone and prepare me to deal with anything. Tuck is all about resources, access, and exposure. Better still, the faculty are sincere about helping you develop your business perspective and acquire the confidence to learn on your own terms.
