UPOP sophomores can "vault ahead of other students"

Tim Dove ’79

I wish I'd had UPOP when I was at MIT. It would have been critical to my success to get to that point faster. The types of activities that are performed within UPOP in terms of leadership, management, and building are critical to make those students ready to take on those higher level responsibilities of leadership…  Students can vault ahead of other students who have only a technical bent, and start to understand the finer aspects of business, of negotiations, of leading teams and leading companies.
