Interesting. Tuck is planning to offer another degree besides the MBA, targeted at recent college grads. I'm a bit surprised by this and wonder if other schools are going to follow suit.

I am actually somewhat disappointed at the news. One of Tuck's biggest selling point is their focus on the 2-year MBA program. I wonder whether this would dilute this focus and the resources available. The access to professors is another plus and the impact of another 120 MiM students remains to be seen. Finally so far there is no mention on facilities but during my visit, it didn't feel like there would be space for another 120 students!

Hi

I agree with domtron that the MIM degree from Tuck will dilute there image of being solo MBA focused school. But can't predict the future right now.

Thanks
:-D

I don't completely agree. I think Tuck needed to offer another type or program to acknowledge that there are a lot more ways these days to get a job or have a career. So I always thought Tuck was a little too narrowly focused.

Actually, back in the 70s and before, the Tuck MBA used to be a "4+1" program. Most of the MBA students were straight from undergrad. I was told this by my friend's dad who is a 1968 grad.

But I can understand concerns about dilution of the brand and spreading the resources. Hopefully, the MIM at Tuck will start in June so that the MIM and MBA students don't completely overlap. And in terms of resources, I imagine some of the undergrad classrooms and/or housing may be used. Or maybe they will build something new.

And even though Dean Danos says he doesn't forsee any cannabilization, I would think that perhaps maybe a few spots would open up in the MBA program that an MIM student would have taken if the person hadn't done the MIM (if this sentence makes sense.)

Tuck is not officially offering a 1 year MiM, contrary to Poets and Quants. They are exploring the option and bringing a bunch of current Tuckies into the process to evaluate the impact on the MBA program. We have all the same questions and concerns you do. It will not go forward unless the community and alumni think it is a value-add to the full time MBA program. It has not been voted on or approved in any way. There are just studies being done. If it even moves past this stage, it wouldn't be ready for enrollment for many, many years. This is not a forgone conclusion. Entirely new facilities would have to be built. The deans themselves aren't even sure this is a good idea yet. This entire conversation is just part of a regularly scheduled strategic review.

That's very reassuring news for a T'16! The facilities side was definitely a concern bearing in mind the current campus is the perfect size of the current class of MBAs but wouldn't be able to accomodate any more students.

Can I be a little bit of a contrarian here. First, Tuck's culture is undoubtedly it's unique selling proposition. But keep in mind that Tuck was significantly expanded under Dean Danos to reach its current size. Moreover, the schools that Tuck competes with are giants: Kellogg, Booth, Columbia etc. Tuck needs to grow its resources to be able to keep up with them. I think that was the rationale behind the expansion move.

Another alternative is to add another section in the MBA class so that the school is still small compared to all others but becomes a little bigger that its current size.

My thoughts are that if Tuck can maintain its culture while growing in some shape or form to keep up with rivals, that would be ideal.

I revised the name of this thread since it was correctly pointed out that Tuck has not come to a final decision yet on this potential offering.
