The series proved extremely popular and valuable for the many alumni who presented and attended. Starting this month, that effort will be re-launched as Tuck Alumni Lifelong Learning, an enhanced and more structured suite of learning sessions to keep alumni at the forefront of important developments in the academic and business worlds, and up to date on the latest news about Tuck. Delivered both virtually and in-person, Tuck Alumni Lifelong Learning allows alumni all over the world to experience all the practical knowledge and wisdom Tuck has to offer.
Tuck Alumni Lifelong Learning sessions are organized on four tracks:
Faculty Briefings. Faculty provide deep dives into current research projects, offer advice on how to address a particular business challenge, and share wisdom from their years of experience about how to think about key business topics.
Insights in Practice. Members of the Tuck community and invited guests provide valuable commentary and interpretation of current business topics or developments.
Tuck Insider. Tuck staff and other school leaders provide updates and insights on all the latest news and developments from the school, as well as provide an opportunity for alumni to join in on key experiences that only happen at Tuck, such as the annual Super Bowl lecture and the “last lecture.”
Career Dispatches. The Alumni Career Services team and featured alumni provide practical tips, case studies, and address the most important considerations for long-term career success.
In the coming months, alumni can expect the following faculty briefings and insider sessions:
Echo Chambers and the Neuroscience of Social Networks with Adam Kleinbaum, associate professor of strategy and management
An Update on Global Trade Policies with Emily Blanchard, associate professor of business administration
Live from Tuck: Super Bowl Advertising Debrief with Kevin Lane Keller, senior associate dean for innovation and growth and the E.B. Osborn Professor of Marketing; and Paul Argenti, professor of corporate communication
