Eduardo Abby T'17

Why Tuck?

When I came to visit, I left my suit on the Dartmouth Coach and I had an interview the next morning. Tiago Fauth T’16 was kind enough to lend me his suit for the day. I was also impressed when I visited a professor’s class, and I saw him later in the afternoon and he remembered my name. That’s when I knew I wanted to spend two years of my life here. As I come from a different country, I thought it would be very important for me to have a close relationship with faculty and classmates. Here, you know everyone by name and people connect much more with each other. It’s a different MBA experience than other schools.

Andrew Allison T'15

WHY TUCK?

I lived in New York City for four years prior to Tuck. When looking at potential business schools to attend, I wanted to go somewhere I’d be surrounded by classmates without the constant distractions of a big city. If I wanted to truly transform myself, I knew I’d need a fully immersive experience which few schools could offer, Tuck being one of them.

Nicole Burns T'17

THE PIVOT I came to Tuck with a passion for social impact consulting. I wanted to see if pursuing an internship in management consulting would be the first best step for me to enter this very niche market of social impact work. I realized after going through the recruiting process that I actually had other passions. I fell in love with technology and wound up getting an internship at Google working on payments which worked really well with my background in finance.

Neeti Bandodker T'17

WHY MBA

During my undergrad, I started becoming interested in the social sector. My college was very far away from home in an underdeveloped part of the country. For the first time, I was exposed to the harsh reality of poverty in India. I got interested in the social sector and was intrigued by micro-finance—offering small loans to women entrepreneurs so they could make better lives for themselves and their families. After college, I worked for a consulting company in the social sector which I really enjoyed. But after a couple of years, I felt I was plateauing in terms of learning and growing professionally. I also realized that many of my colleagues had a business background—whether in consulting, investing, or an MBA degree—and I could see how they added a lot of value to the conversation. Their skillset was highly valued in the social sector. That planted the seed. I wanted to complement my knowledge of social issues with a business background.

Vedrana Greatorex T'18

Business was the language I grew up with. My mom was a banker, and my dad was a business manager for several different companies. I was born into a white-collar family in Croatia, but when I moved to the U.S. alone, I found that I had to reestablish myself.

Chris Dolan T'14

Why Tuck?

People often say that Tuck is a transformative experience, and I think they’re right. Tuck teaches you how to think strategically and prioritize. Some of the lessons taught in courses like Competitive Strategy can also be applied to how you spend your time, what you focus on, and how you approach your goals. Another transformative skill is determining the right questions to ask and knowing where to find the answers. We’re certainly trained to think with an analytical mindset in our courses, but the broader Tuck MBA experience—including interactions with classmates, professors, and alumni—further reinforces the practice of thinking about who it would be helpful to talk to, and then going to get their perspective.

Whitney Flynn T'16

Why Tuck?

I had the benefit of spending four years in Hanover as a Dartmouth undergraduate and knew that there’s something really special that happens in this setting. The DNA of an educational experience here is totally unique—everyone is completely invested in the community. I knew that would be the setting through which I'd have the strongest community experience with my Tuck classmates and professors and others. For a lot of people, this setting is a big step outside of their comfort zone in a way that creates an open mindset for new experiences. As a Dartmouth alum and outdoor enthusiast, Tuck wasn’t outside of my comfort zone. I was excited to share what this environment has to offer with my peers.

Elliot Gillerman T'15

WHY TUCK?

After living in Washington for almost a decade, I was eager to return to New England for graduate school. I knew this time would be an opportunity to focus intensely on my personal and professional development. In order to achieve those goals, I wanted a small campus, a tight-knit community, and a supportive learning environment. Tuck has been all those things and more.

Tanya Gulnik T'15

WHY TUCK?

Tuck was the last school I visited and the last application due, but as soon as I saw it, I felt like, “I have to come here!” Even in my short visit, Tuck’s tight-knit community was so obvious: People know your first name and you can easily connect with professors and your fellow students. About eight of us did a pre-orientation backpacking trip on the Appalachian Trail and we got to know each other right away. Some of them are still my best friends today!

Mayank Kapur T'14

Why Tuck?

What makes Tuck different from the other top business schools is its remarkable level of engagement. Before I came here, I had an opportunity to talk to a few alums, and they were so willing to help me out that I remember thinking, “I’m not even a member of the community yet and they’re willing to devote so much time—imagine what it will be like if I do become a part of the community.” That was validated when I came here—Tuck becomes such a personalized experience where each professor, each classmate, each alumn is committed to your success.

Sadé Lawrence T'18

I am passionate about people, their development, and the role they play in organizations. You can have a great business strategy, but if you don’t have the right people and the right infrastructure in place to support those people, then your strategy falls apart.

Difu Li T'14

Why Tuck?

I chose Tuck because Hanover is the complete opposite of Hong Kong, and I think part of the MBA experience is to get out of your comfort zone and experience something you wouldn’t otherwise. I am so glad I chose to live and learn here. Tuck turned out to be the best two years of my life.

Joseph Magdovitz T'15

WHY TUCK?

I wanted a place where I would receive a well-rounded education, have intimate access to top professors, and build a great network. Tuck has exceeded my expectations in all of these areas. Professors take pride in teaching, relating to students, and creating an environment in which you are excited and motivated to learn. Alumni and classmates were unbelievably helpful with my career search. Having access to the wealth of knowledge and experience in the Tuck network was a major differentiator for me.

A RE-EDUCATION IN LEADERSHIP

Being a co-chair of Tuck Talks, where students spend tens of hours preparing a 10-minute talk to answer the question “What is a relationship or experience that fundamentally changed the way you see the world?” has been a particularly meaningful experience for me. At Tuck Talks, we operate under the assumption that everyone has a unique story to tell. These are stories you don’t necessarily hear or see on a daily basis, and we’ve been able to provide this forum where people are comfortable sharing their authentic and vulnerable viewpoints to 300 or more of their peers. Every time I sit down to talk with someone about their story, I’m both humbled and amazed by the experiences they bring with them to this institution and their willingness to share.

Danielle Musa T'17

VALUES-DRIVEN BUSINESS

The central thread in my Tuck experience is what I’d call values-driven business. I believe most people would like to “do well while doing good.” I wanted to dive deep into what that meant, understanding the many ways businesses aim to do this, and developing my own definition.

Muyambi Muyambi T'18

Finance Meets Social Good

I really came to Tuck for the education. Prior to Tuck, I was an engineer, but I didn’t know much about finance or business strategy. I wanted to gain experience in those areas so I took as many finance courses as I could. Studying finance isn’t necessarily about wanting to earn more money. For me, I wanted to ensure that, when I join a company, I understand every facet of it.

Mollie Naber T'16

Why Tuck?

I was pregnant and at an MBA career fair in Belgium where a recruiter overheard me talking about what I wanted—a small community where you can be outdoors; a place where people take care of their neighbors, the opportunity to explore public policy issues. The recruiter recommended Tuck, which hadn't been my radar. My husband matched at Dartmouth for residency; I was waitlisted and enrolled at Tuck the following year. This extra time gave me a chance to enjoy hiking and snowshoeing in the Upper Valley with my newborn while clarifying my career goals through consulting work.

Stephanie C. O’Brien T'14

Why Tuck?

When I applied, I knew very little about business school but a fair amount about leadership development. I thought Tuck would be a place where I’d learn even more about what it meant to be a leader. Tuck does a really great job giving students the opportunity to lead—it’s a place where the students shape the school.

Martina Ravelli T'18

WHY MBA

I was born and raised in Italy and lived there for 21 years before moving to Germany, which is where most of my work experience has been. I worked for Deloitte for six years which was an amazing experience. But after a while I felt that my area of expertise was too narrow and was focused in an area which I wasn’t very passionate about. I started considering an MBA so I could be better equipped to switch careers to a different type of job. I wanted to see what that would look like. I wanted to transform my leadership skills. I knew I had a solid foundation in some of the hard skills of business—finance, accounting—but working at Deloitte, I met some really amazing leaders. I saw how they were motivating their teams and empowering people. I didn’t want to leave that to serendipity. I wanted to learn, and grow, and experiment.

Julia Rosenbaum T'18

I pursued both an MBA from Tuck and a master’s in public administration (MPA) at the Harvard Kennedy School. With a dual degree, I not only got the policy and the nonprofit perspective that comes with an MPA, but I also gained business and management skills with an MBA. Prior to Tuck, I was happily working in the nonprofit space, but I knew I wanted to go back to school to further develop my leadership skills and feel comfortable taking on more projects and leading teams.

Mandakini Saroop T'14

Why Tuck?

One of the first things I noticed about Tuck is that everybody knows everyone else. We did a tour after my interview and my tour guide was a second-year. I swear he knew everybody by name, and everyone knew him by name. For me, this was important; I wanted to be part of a community, not just an anonymous person in a large school. I knew it was the right fit for me when, as a first-year student, I felt comfortable asking for help from my classmates and they were all too willing to drop what they were doing and lend a hand.

Aviran Sethi T'16

WHY TUCK?

I came to Tuck interested in learning how to be a leader and a change-agent. I wanted to know how I could apply more rigorous business acumen and leadership to identify, invest in, and scale innovations to positively affect students growing up in underserved communities whose current school systems are not adequately providing for their needs. Despite the specificity, complexity, and non-traditional nature of my goals, as soon as I said this was what I wanted, everyone at Tuck went out of their way to support me on my journey.

Aditya K. Shah T'16

WHY TUCK?

When I visited for the first time, Tuck allowed me to accompany an operations course to the Keurig Green Mountain factory even though I hadn’t applied yet. I thought, “If this is how Tuck treats people who aren’t admitted yet, how would it be if I was actually a student here?” That made me decide right then that this was the place for me.

Divya Belavadi Struebing T'15

WHY TUCK?

At first, I felt a little intimidated by the business school experience, but Tuck’s small class size, intimate character, and supportive atmosphere made me feel welcome. I knew that I could come to Tuck and really own my experience so that I could become whatever I wanted.

Jed D. Talvacchia T'14

Why Tuck?

I chose Tuck because it has a dual degree with the School of Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins University, where I was already enrolled, so my arrival at Tuck was serendipitous. I had no direct business experience, but Tuck strikes a great balance between academic rigor, real-world perspective, and fun. Plus, the power of its community can’t be overstated—I think it’s the only reason I got an internship and then a full-time offer in banking. The bank took a big risk on me and it’s the Tuck alumni who really pushed my application forward. All you need is that one chance to prove yourself and Tuck produced that opportunity.

David Washer T'17

A JOINT DEGREE WITH DARTMOUTH

Prior to Tuck, I had done some public health casework, strengthening social safety net health care systems. Of all my casework, it was the most confusing. That was when I got a better sense of how complicated the U.S. health care system is. It made me think more about pursuing a master’s of public health degree, especially at Dartmouth which is focused on health care systems and unwarranted variation across them.

Building a Solid Foundation in Business

Before coming to Tuck, I spent six years in the health care industry in a variety of product manager roles.  I was able to take ownership, run my own product line, and work across different functions. I was really learning a lot and was passionate about what I was doing, but I felt that if I wanted to advance in my career, I had to solidify my foundation in business.
