First- and second-year students share the courses that have not only prepared them to succeed in their future careers, but have had a lasting impact—one that will stay with them long after they leave campus. ...

Platform Design Management and Strategy with Geoffrey Parker, Professor of Engineering and Director of the Master of Engineering Management Program

Platforms, taught by Professor Geoffrey Parker, was one of my favorite courses at Tuck. It’s one of a handful taught between Thayer School of Engineering and Tuck. We studied everything from contemporary cases such as Uber or Facebook, historical examples with SAP and Quickbooks, and startups from our very own Thayer and Tuck students. What’s unique about this course is not just the content but the rich discussion only possible due to the mix of diverse perspectives from Engineering and MBA students. Personally, it was a great class to help me prepare for the decisions that have to be made as a Product Manager in the tech industry. It also certainly helps that Professor Parker’s energy is infectious and makes the class engaging through lively case discussions and hosting in-class speakers! —Sravya Yeleswarapu T’18
