The spring term has drawn to a close this week, and in the wake of finalizing that last assignment I want to congratulate you on all that you have accomplished in this challenging but rewarding academic year.
In the days ahead, I encourage you to reflect on how you have been developing professionally and personally in your time at Tuck. All that you learned in your Tuck classes; all the ways that you applied those learnings in various co-curricular settings; all the opportunities you have striven for in your career journey: I hope that every one of you sees accomplishments that are transforming you into the leader and person you aspire to be.
And to you T’21s in particular, you are to be doubly congratulated for your determined pursuit of an MBA degree. Although our world today is not one any of us could have anticipated two years ago, all along the way your class persevered. I sincerely hope that every graduating student sees yourself today as a much wiser and more decisive leader thanks to all that you invested in and accomplished in crafting your personal journey through our School.
For 121 years and counting, earning a Tuck MBA has required commitment, effort, resolve, and teamwork. I know that I speak for all the Tuck faculty and staff in congratulating all of you students for successfully reaching the end of this term and this year.
The time ahead brings many transitions – into summer internships, into post-Tuck jobs, in where one lives, and so forth. We wish you good luck every step of the way. Amidst all these transitions, please be sure enjoy some deserved rest, reflection, and good cheer.
