FROM Tuck Admissions Blog: “No school does social impact quite like Tuck”

By Eric Giles T'16


Eric is a career switcher who transitioned from an education nonprofit—Teach For America—to the health care sector. He hopes to expand health access to all populations.

Whether or not you came from, or are headed towards, a socially-oriented career, how well a school integrates social impact with its business curriculum must be on your personal checklist. The success of future business leaders will depend on how well they understand that their actions are intertwined with the surrounding community and then use that knowledge to their advantage. As I investigated which business school to attend, I was blown away by the depth of experiences Tuck offers to students to help them understand how to use their business skills to bolster the global community.

You have undoubtedly seen in your research that Tuck is among the best in career statistics, faculty research, teaching quality, and alumni network. What continues to set Tuck truly apart is the way that the school offers students the chance to see how their business skills can make a transformational impact on the broader world. Below is just a small sample of the opportunities you’ll find at your fingertips if you become a Tuckie. Many of these are put on by the Center for Business and Society and I would encourage you to check out their website to learn more.

  • Social Venture Fund: Tuck is among a handful of schools that offers students first-hand experience in impact investing. Work with fellow students to invest significant money into organizations that produce social as well as financial returns.
  • Revers Board Fellows: Your cutting edge MBA skills can be used to immediately help nonprofit organizations. Through this program, you sit on a local nonprofit board to help the organization create value.
  • World class speakers: Tuck brings the most prominent thinkers in the world to talk to students in intimate settings. Because of Tuck’s small size, we receive ample opportunity to meet visiting speakers one-on-one or in small group settings.
  • Business and Society Conference: The entire Tuck community comes together to learn from experts in fields such as impact investing, venture capital, education, health care, and sustainability.
  • Allwin Community Day: One of your first experiences as a Tuckie will be working with your new study group to consult for a local nonprofit.
  • Negotiating ethics: Tuckies come together for monthly discussions on critical ethical issues. Topics range from accounting disclosures and Enron to the ethics of major companies marketing in low-income markets traditionally dominated by local businesses.
  • Your fellow students: You will find that your fellow students will push you daily to consider the broader social issues. Our students come from a variety of backgrounds, including education, agriculture, sustainability, and ethical supply chain management. There are no shortage of Tuckies who bring valuable first-hand experience of being on the front lines of social impact.

Again, this is only a small sample of opportunities available to you at Tuck. As you explore your MBA options, I am confident that you will come to the same conclusion as I did a year ago: No school does social impact quite like Tuck.

FROM Tuck Admissions Blog: Get to know us!

The Tuck MBA experience is based on complete engagement with our community, our faculty, and our curriculum. You can't be anonymous here.

Every student at Tuck thrives with individual attention, unparalleled access to resources, and the confidence that your future is taken seriously. Even before you step foot on campus – or heck, even apply! – we want you to have an immense amount of access to knowledge about Tuck and our application process.

Here are a few ways we can get to know each other better:

1) Talk to an admissions representative, student, or alum at an off-campus event, right in your neighborhood. Last year, we hosted close to 200 off-campus events ranging from informal coffee chats, Tuck specific information sessions, breakfast with our Director of Admissions Dawna Clarke, and attended a number of MBA fairs. Come see us at an event near you!

2) Though nothing beats a face-to-face interaction, we know that’s not always feasible. Our online events provide a great opportunity to learn about Tuck from the comfort of...anywhere! We offer several online Q&A sessions and informational webinars across many platforms. Use this page to decide which work best for you.

3) As always, one of the best ways to really get to know Tuck is to talk to someone who’s experienced it. Tuck Connections matches your profile with that of a similar student or alum. While we can't ensure an exact match, we can get pretty close! Once matched, these Tuckies will connect with you via email enabling you to ask them for their perspectives on those things you feel are important in helping you chose a school for your MBA.

4) The best way for us to get to know each other? Come to Hanover, NH and experience Tuck for yourself. Initiate an admissions interview (the only way to guarantee time in front of an admissions rep), have lunch with current students, tour Tuck’s campus, and get all your questions answered by an admissions officer. Even outside of the scheduled visit day, just being a part of our community for a few hours is a valuable resource as you complete your application and ultimately, decide which school you want to be a part of for the next two years and the rest of your life as an alum.

So pick one, pick two, or better yet, do all four! We add new events all the time so keep checking in. And of course, keep reading Tuck 360!

FROM Tuck Admissions Blog: Ready for Tuck

By Archit Mehta T'17


Archit is an incoming T’17. A chartered accountant and a CPA by background, Archit spent four years in finance consulting with Deloitte India before Tuck. Outside of work and studies, he enjoys soccer, cricket and reading. Archit can be reached at archit.mehta.tu17@tuck.dartmouth.edu.

 

“Hi Archit. I am calling from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth. Congratulations! You have been accepted to Tuck’s class of 2017.” It has been over six months since that call, but the feeling is still sinking in.

The primary reason I applied to Tuck was its community. Business school is a place to grow; to grow, you must experiment; and when you experiment, you are bound to falter. At a place like Tuck, I’ll be more than comfortable doing so. Although I didn’t get a chance to visit campus, I made it a point to attend as many admission events in India as possible. Current and past Tuckies thronged these events, which gave me a fantastic sense of Tuck’s welcoming and supportive culture. Additionally, Tuck alumni at my current organization and other alumni sharing my post-MBA career interests enthusiastically mentored me through the application process. I am certain of receiving similar support over the next two years.

Another reason I chose Tuck was global exposure. I was keen to build on the limited pre-MBA work abroad opportunities I had had. Tuck’s First-Year Project and OnSite Global Consulting offer opportunities to travel abroad and work with foreign companies. Global Insight Expeditions offer a chance to understand the overall economic, political and cultural environment of a country. The Center for Business and Society and the Center for Global Business and Government have research travel programs. Most importantly, the residential nature of the program allows complete immersion into a global student community, and the extremely active socio-cultural clubs add to the experience.

As the excitement builds up for what is going to be a two-year roller coaster ride, I have been enjoying a break from work, spending quality time with my family and relishing the best of Indian cuisine! Planning my move to Hanover has been super easy. Tuck’s administrative offices including the MBA Program Office and Financial Aid office have been very responsive and exceptionally helpful. Securing financing, housing, visa etc., which might otherwise have been bothersome, has been absolutely straightforward.

More importantly, I have had the chance to connect with a bunch of Tuckies before school begins. A group of T’15s and T’16s visited India this March as part of the Global Insight Expedition. Incoming T’17s got a chance to attend a Private Equity seminar organized for them as well as mingle with them over drinks and dinner. We got valuable insights into everything from recruiting strategies to the MBA soccer world cup (find me leading Tuck’s defense next year!). Also, our T’17 India WhatsApp group has been buzzing 24x7, with people setting up informal meetups, helping each other sort out post-admission formalities, sharing laptop deal alerts and planning whose place to visit for good Indian food once school starts!

With bags packed with tons of memories from the past and even greater excitement for the future, I am all set for Tuck.
