“As a professional athlete, the timing of this program was perfect for me—I am very much figuring out who I am outside of my sport. ”

Olympic bronze medalist, Swimming

Olympic Silver Medalist, Canada Rowing Team
“What I enjoyed the most was how much I was able to absorb in such a short amount of time. It speaks to the quality of professors at Tuck. Not only do they possess this great knowledge, but they’re also passionate. When they get in front of the classroom, it just flows out of them in a natural way, and it’s easy to understand.”
Conlin McCabe

Olympic Silver Medalist, Canada Rowing Team

Production Officer, U.S. Army Reserves
“Coming to Tuck, I was able to sit in class during the day and learn things about business strategy, accounting, and branding. Then, at night, I would go back to my hotel room and implement those things to help shape my organization and take it in the right direction. ”
Blake Bassett

Production Officer, U.S. Army Reserves

“The Tuck family was so accepting of all participants and will help in any way possible. As I pursue a career in business, my time at Next Step and the connections I have made will be invaluable. This program is a must for all those pursuing a successful transition to business.”

Surface Warfare Officer, U.S. Navy
“The initial day, all the military people clustered together and we used jargon and acronyms, but when we started mingling with the athletes, it all clicked. We have a lot in common.”
Jan Ingram

Surface Warfare Officer, U.S. Navy

Flight Commander, U.S. Air Force
“Transitioning out of the military, one of the things we don’t really have an appreciation for is how many career fields and industries are out there. Hearing the speakers and panelists really gave me an appreciation for all that there is for this next step transition in my life.”
Sean Millner

Flight Commander, U.S. Air Force

Captain, U.S. Army
“I wanted to see what the real world offered. This program was attractive because it’s not an MBA with a two-year commitment, but an opportunity to get my feet wet and realize what I don’t know. It’s kind of scary but also inspiring.”
Amit Patel

Captain, U.S. Army

“Having attended Next Step, I learned that many people are in transition. Even though I haven’t finished the process yet, the program gave me the ability to so and the skills to be successful.”
