Linda Horner T'20
.pathwayImage {background-position-x: 60% !important;}

I pursued an MBA because I wanted to gain a deeper understanding of business strategy, develop my leadership repertoire, grow my professional network, and have a greater impact on my community. I am passionate about solving global health problems and am fascinated by the role of business in providing out-of-the box, low-cost innovations to meet these problems for example, franchising health or leveraging ubiquitous mobile technology. Reflecting on personal experiences, such as the death of my cousin in Uganda from an undiagnosed disease or the high rate of maternal mortality in my community, instilled in me a yearning to make a difference. I knew that the toolkit and leadership development I would gain from the MBA would help me do just that.

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.

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.

WHY TUCK?

I was already at Dartmouth in medical school, but I thought that there was something missing from my education that I could get from business school. I wanted to understand greater commerce, how things fit into everything else, and develop the soft skills of business leaders. When I came to Tuck, I saw how rich the social life was here and how vibrant, diverse, and energetic the culture was. I knew I could gain a lot from Tuck and thrive here, too.

Why Tuck?

I did my undergrad at Dartmouth and absolutely loved my time here. In many ways, it was a life-changing experience. I met so many smart, driven, and thoughtful people who were, on top of all these things, well intentioned in their aspirations. Being surrounded by those people bred my desire to be impactful and led to my eventual interest in health care. So when I was selecting a program for my MBA, I wanted that same sense of community on which to build my leadership skills. I sought to build a network with people who also valued leading good organizations. That, plus the incredible access to superstar faculty and a strong alumni network made my decision to come to Tuck easy.

Tolulope Kehinde T'19

I moved to the United States in 2009 from Nigeria. After attending Mount Holyoke College, I knew I wanted to go to medical school. But as I learned more about what I wanted to do, I realized I didn't want to just be a doctor. I know how that sounds! But what I mean is, clinical work alone wasn’t going to get me where I wanted to go. So I figured out that I might want to do an MD/MBA program.

What you learn at business school is going to be similar at most of the top MBA programs. The question is, where are you going to learn best? What kind of environment is going to allow you to get the most out of your experience? When I considered my options during the application process, I knew I was ready to immerse myself in a tight-knit, close, remote environment in the woods. Tuck has been a safe space to learn, to challenge myself, and to prepare for my adventure.

Why Tuck?

I chose Tuck because of the people. I met two first-years over a coffee chat in Singapore and one of them actually took extra time to speak with me on a different day too. The enthusiasm that student had for Tuck was such a different experience from the other schools I’d looked at.

I decided to get an MBA because I knew something was fundamentally missing. I had a science background and always loved health care, but I knew my lack of a tangible business skillset would ultimately hold me back from being truly successful in my career. I worked in sales and consulting prior to Tuck, and while they were valuable experiences, it became obvious that something additional was needed. Tuck was on the top of my list because I had worked with Tuck alumni and a good friend of mine from high school was a Tuck alum. They always raved about the school and how much they enjoyed their two years there. After coming to campus and interviewing, I was sold.

WHY TUCK?

I’m in the MD-MBA program. Since I was already at Dartmouth, I had a couple years to really visit Tuck, meet a lot of people here, and develop relationships. Even though I had no real-world experience in business or even medicine, everyone at Tuck was so friendly and helpful. I knew that Tuck was the place I needed to be to grow and develop in the best way possible.

Erin McInerney T'14

Why Tuck?

I came to Tuck looking to transition from business development as an adviser within a foreign government to a corporate strategy function inside a health care company. So I reached out to a lot of different people—professors, alumni, and visiting executives. Tuck’s health care network is intimate and strong and they were really helpful. I did my summer internship with the marketing team at Medtronic, a medical device manufacturer. After graduation, I’m going to Boston Scientific to work in corporate strategy. Tuck helped me achieve exactly what I said I wanted to do, and it also helped me realize it was the right path all along.

Ayobami Olufadeji T'16

Why Tuck?

When I came to med school at Dartmouth, I wasn’t thinking I was going to go to business school. I realized that we weren’t really going to learn anything about improving access to care for people and that’s what I want to do in Nigeria. So I searched for the program that would best supplement my MD. After speaking with some people at Tuck and taking some electives here, I realized Tuck would give me the best analytical and strategic skills I needed to achieve my dream.

WHY MBA

Before Tuck, I worked in a very technical field: electrical engineering. Many of my managers were MBAs, and they told me the value of taking a step back for a couple years to get an eagle eye view of the industry, the many roles that exist within each industry, and have a chance to focus on what the perfect fit is for me in terms of a career. Beyond that, I wanted to be able to round out my education and develop myself as a person.

Why Tuck?

For me, one word that encapsulates Tuck is ‘open.’ I first noticed this at the Diversity Conference I attended as a prospective student, where the entire community got involved, not just the people of color. I saw it again when a few classmates and I started Wall Street Edge, a program that helps connect incoming students with financial services firms. The support I received from all levels of the administration showed me you can take advantage of the pre-existing opportunities at Tuck or try something completely unheard of. As I’ve seen the effort pay off for classes behind me, it’s been very rewarding. Tuck has plentiful possibilities.

Craig S. Silverman T'14

Why Tuck?

Coming into business school, I wanted to establish lifelong friendships with my classmates and build a great professional network. During my admissions visit to Tuck, I noticed that my tour guide said hello to every person that we passed in the hallways. I remember that she pointed out that Tuck is a relatively small school where you get to know everyone in your class. She also talked about a tight-knit community where students come to learn for two years and make great friendships. I knew that Tuck would be the perfect business school for me.

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.
