What Sets Dartmouth Tuck Apart

  • Strong General Management Curriculum: Dartmouth Tuck’s strong general management curriculum is a defining characteristic of the school’s academic experience. First years are required to take courses in Management Communication, Managerial Economics, Managing People, and Operations Management. The bulk of these core management courses are offered at the start of the program, with the exception of Operations Management, which students take in the spring term.
  • Growing International Presence and Experience: During their studies, all Dartmouth Tuck MBA students must partake in at least one global opportunity (referred to as TuckGO) in a country that they are unfamiliar with. Through these international travel experiences, Tuck MBAs have the opportunity to interact with entrepreneurs, corporate and community leaders, government officials, and locals from different walks of life.
  • Mix of Case and Lecture Learning: Dartmouth Tuck is among the handful of top business schools that use case-method teaching practices. Through a mix of case-based and lecture learning, the school cultivates a dynamic, challenging environment for its students.
  • Family & Outdoor Oriented: Given the school’s location, year-round outdoor recreation is a key part of the Tuck experience. Families are also an integral part of the Tuck community. In fact, 25% of the class of 2023 reported having partners, and 4% reported having children.
