Why did you choose the Dartmouth MEM?
When it came to deciding between the MEM at Dartmouth and Duke, the factors that drove me towards the former were the smaller class size, the relative proximity to New York where I hoped to work given my interest in the financial services sector, and the choice of Tuck electives that were offered to MEM students.
What was the most valuable part of your MEM internship experience?
Gap analysis of the in-house credit risk tool from a product, process and infrastructure perspective and comparison against vendor solutions
How did the Dartmouth MEM prepare you for your career?
Courses such as Technology Analysis and Technology Project Management equipped me with the skills to approach technical challenges methodically. The finance electives at Tuck were crucial to my understanding of financial instruments and financial statement analysis.
What is your favorite Dartmouth MEM memory?
I have fond memories from the last term at Dartmouth after receiving a full-time offer from the bank I interned with over the summer. Having taken four courses in the spring term while facing the relentless pressures of the internship search, it was finally time to relax and enjoy the lesser course load. I also had more time to soak in the area's spellbinding fall splendor and spend time outdoors.
