Mark Van Eeghen MEM'14

Mark Van Eeghen Hometown: Hilversum, The Netherlands

Previous Degree: B.S. in Industrial Engineering, University of Groningen

About Me: "I was raised in a town close to Amsterdam and after finishing college I decided to move to the U.S. I enjoy meeting new people and the M.E.M. program has proven to be a great place for it. If I have some time off I like to travel and explore new places. Otherwise I enjoy playing squash, tennis, or when I'm in Europe, field hockey."

Why I Chose the M.E.M.: "After getting my engineering degree I felt I lacked understanding of business concepts. The M.E.M. degree was a perfect match for me, because I was able to stick with my engineering background and to learn about important business ideas. Furthermore, I liked the opportunity to gear the degree toward my interests in energy and sustainability by choosing a range of electives from both Thayer and Tuck School of Business."
