“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 TNS'17

Surface Warfare Officer, U.S. Navy

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. ”

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 TNS'17

Flight Commander, U.S. Air Force

U.S. Marine Corps, Special Operations Team Commander
“This program gave me the exact exposure to business functions terminology, and practices that I nee in order to laterally transfer my skills. It's the sum of all the parts together that made it clear to me that I'm not entering an entirely new world, I'm just using different words and different tools.”
Zach Woodcox TNS'18

U.S. Marine Corps, Special Operations Team Commander

U.S. Marine Corps veteran; founder, MacDonald's Fresh
