This review is for Tuck

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2017

Experience during the program

Tuck has met all my expectations to date. First, it provides a wide range of opportunities not only limited to consulting or banking. There are a myriad of general management jobs and more recently technology jobs available. While there are lot of opportunities for the Northeast, increasingly there are opportunities further afield with a growing alumni base out on the West Coast. Overall, I found the Careers Development Office and the alumni network to be valuable resources in the job search.

Tuck is a close-knit program that really focuses on community. Since Dean Slaughter took over, there has been an increased focus on innovation and global experiences. I am very optimistic about the changes that Dean Slaughter will push forward and believe that Tuck will continue to improve its offer while keeping the thing that it is really good at - the close-knit residential full-time MBA program.

Due to the small class size, you really can get to know all your classmates. To date, I know every single person of my class and around 50-60% of the class above and below. There is something to be said for shared experiences and I think this is the primary reason why Tuck has such strong alumni support. Whenever I speak with an alum, we frequently talk about things happening at Tuck and age old traditions like tripod hockey or skiing at Killington.

Tuck is not for everyone due to its size and location but I personally viewed both as big advantages. I would recommend any applicant to take advantage of the open interview system to visit and interview on campus. You may be surprised!

About professors, classes and curriculum

The core curriculum is a key component of Tuck and I really like how it stitches together to form a cohesive experience. In particular, Professors Neslin and Kopalle, who both teach core statistics, are phenomenal professors.

Tuck also has some great healthcare classes due to its close ties with Geisel, the medical school at Dartmouth.
