Student Stories

Constantine Triantafyllides T'19

I’ve always wanted to study in a small community. I am originally from Athens, Greece, but I came to the States for college and studied engineering at the University of Virginia. I loved my time there. It was the real college experience.

Josh Hotvet T'18

I came to Tuck from the military, the United States Marine Corps, where I spent my entire adult life. I learned so many important skills and I loved every second of my time in the Marine Corps. But I didn’t get the hard business and quantitative skills I needed. I wanted to be able to bolster the experiences I had in the military, which were very heavy in leadership and analytical problem solving, with the hard quantitative skills—finance, accounting, marketing—that an MBA offers. I also wanted the time and space to explore the renewable industry, which has always interested me. Coming to a full-time MBA program like Tuck gave me the opportunity to fully explore the industry and to gain a very solid foundation of business knowledge and experience. I came to Tuck with zero experience in energy.

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.

Mathew O’Sullivan T'19

Business school is an opportunity to strengthen my finance skillset and expand my knowledge of infrastructure investments beyond frontier markets. I was an English and politics major at Washington & Lee University, and shortly after graduation I found myself working at a Mongolian bank—with no finance experience whatsoever. I taught myself some rudimentary modeling, and after spending over a year in Mongolia I continued to pursue my interest in infrastructure finance by joining CrossBoundary, a frontier markets investment firm with offices across Africa and in Washington, DC. I learned a lot at CrossBoundary. And I discovered that if I wanted to have a deeper understanding of the transactions I was advising on, I needed an MBA.

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.

Aygul Sanzyapova T'19

While at Tuck, I switched my career to renewable energy finance. It was not an area in which I had experience, but I saw business school as a platform to finally jump into it. Before Tuck, I worked for my family’s business, and before that I had a brief gig in the fashion industry. So, for me, clean tech and corporate finance were both completely new topics that I had to learn from ground zero. Tuck was a perfect place to do that.
