More about Duke's MBA program:
Besides the health sector, the school is also strong in marketing, finance and general management.
However, the school doesn't offer any formal majors apart from health sector management. Rather, the program offers flexibility in building the second year schedule from a wide variety of elective courses.
Students are very involved in the school life, and are responsible for any campus activities and events. Another characteristic of the student population is that it is relatively older, and includes a high proportion of international students (in particular from Asia). The school emphasizes teamwork and leadership, as well as quantitative skills.
Duke is located in Durham, a small town in North Carolina, which helps create the Fuqua tight-knit student community - which is less common at school located in larger cities.
Alumni include the following individuals, with current or past positions in parentheses: John Allison (Chairman of BB&T), Thomas Finke (Chairman and CEO, Babson Capital Management), Frank A. Riddick, (President and CEO of Formica Corporation) and Timothy Cook (COO and former Acting CEO of Apple Inc.).
