LIFE AT TUCK IS FULL OF OPPORTUNITY.

Tuck Business School is a community where experience and diverse perspectives are shared. It is also a place where individuals are celebrated and supported as they tackle new ideas and learn what it means to lead.

The entire experience from activities and events to the everyday encounters with people who inspire is designed with one purpose in mind: to develop business leaders who want to use their talents to better the world.

Are you ready to be Challenged at every Moment? Ways to Study at Tuck

Every element in the academic experience at Tuck; from team-based project work and experiential and global learning opportunities to case-based courses, independent study, and small-scale Research-to-Practice Seminars is designed to push students further than they thought possible with the goal of developing curious, creative leaders.

Rigorous self-analysis is at the core of Tuck’s approach to leadership development. Combining feedback from coworkers and fellow students with instruction and peer coaching, our students gain insights that the traditional case teaching method can’t provide.

With TuckGO, the world is your classroom.

Today’s global business leaders must be able to successfully navigate different cultures, economies, and industries. To help our students develop these crucial capabilities, Tuck has carefully designed a portfolio of immersive, experiential courses that take place around the world.

During the MBA program, each student must take at least one TuckGO course in a country that is new to them. In the previous academic year, students studied in 33 countries, from Ghana and Vietnam to Ireland and Australia.

Funded by a sustaining gift from the American family foundation of Michaela and Zdenek Bakala T’89, the Bakala TuckGO Program provides valuable support to the entire TuckGO portfolio of courses to help ensure students develop the skills, knowledge, and global mindset to lead across cultures.

The core curriculum is the foundation of learning in the Tuck MBA program, intentionally designed to develop the functional skills leaders need to decide; the tools to gather and analyze data; and the leadership ability to craft, communicate and execute a vision for change with and through others.

Tuck’s integrated core curriculum provides rigorous coverage of key functional areas and disciplines with courses that build on and complement each other: analytics, corporate finance and capital markets, managerial and global economics, marketing, organizational behaviour, strategy, communications, and operations.

Students who have extensive previous background in a particular discipline may be exempt from a course and take an elective course in its place.

Entry Requirements

Tuck students bring experiences and perspectives from a wide range of colleges and universities, companies, countries, cultures, and contexts. The class is diverse by design. Yet, you’ll find that Tuck students are consistently characterized by four attributes. You’re a strong candidate for admission if you show them too…

What are the Qualities of the Students at Tuck Business School?

#1. SMART

Your intellectual aptitude matters. Your grades and test scores reflect previous academic performance, communication skills, and ability with numbers. Being smart also means you realize you don’t know it all.

You’re curious, excited by challenges, and motivated to learn from others’ experiences and expertise. You continually seek to grow by engaging and exploring the world around you. Your aptitude and curiosity will advance and enrich rigorous discourse with Tuck classmates, faculty, and visiting executives.

#3. ACCOMPLISHED

Your professional performance matters, as do community engagement and personal achievements. You should be excellent at your job and impactful outside of it. And you should have the results, progression, and endorsements to prove it. 

Yet you achieve these outcomes with principled behavior. You don’t just go through the motions, wilt in tough moments, or seek to win at any cost. Your commitment to these behaviors, both in success and setback, suggests you’ll transform Tuck as a student leader and the organizations and communities you’ll lead as an alum.

#3. THEY ARE AWARE

You understand how your values and experiences have shaped your identity and character. You welcome and learn from direct feedback. But knowing who you are, and how you got here, is just the beginning. You connect your experiences and present motivations with your future path and chart a course forward.

 You identify coherent goals, audacious in scope yet grounded in reality, and articulate how the distinctive Tuck MBA will advance your aspirations to better the world of business. And you recognize how your individuality will add to the fabric of the Tuck community.

#4. FINALLY, TUCK STUDENTS ARE NICE

This is quintessential Tuck, where you actively encourage, celebrate, and support others. You offer help, and you ask for it yourself.

At Tuck Business Academy, you exhibit emotional intelligence, layer compassion onto courage, and challenge others tactfully and thoughtfully. Also, your actions exude respect and integrity even when it’s not convenient or easy. There is also the need to show empathy for the diverse experiences of others while also sharing your own. 

You acknowledge that your success and others’ success are interdependent thus generously invest in both while building trust through deep, genuine connections that will endure for life.
