A homecoming that inspired the next generation of students

Zdenek Bakala serves as a member of the Board of Overseers at his alma mater, the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, USA. “Everything I’ve been able to achieve is due to my American education and especially Tuck,” he says.

That is why Zdenek continues to consider other young futures. He endowed the Bakala Professor of Management faculty chair at Tuck. “The skills I learned at Tuck translated into success in entrepreneurship,” he says. “I want to make sure this experience continues.” His companies have sent several employees to Tuck Executive Education programs and several students have already been admitted to the university thanks to Bakala Foundation scholarships.

Serving as an investiture speaker, Zdenek Bakala told Tuck 2013 graduates to let knowledge be their guide. “Life,” he said, “will surprise you.”
