The school’s location is relatively remote, which helps develop a strong community feeling and close ties between students and faculty. The school therefore emphasizes teamwork, with many classes and projects relying on study groups.
The program is considered especially well-suited for those who enjoy community, living on campus, being far from a big city and outdoor activities.
The school is very popular with US employers, and in employer surveys (conducted by the Wall Street Journal), Tuck often ranked first among US MBA programs.
In terms of the admissions process, Tuck is unique in offering all applicants the opportunity to interview on campus at their own initiative, as well as offering the option to apply in a nonbinding “early action” round.
Tuck has a relatively small alumni network, with the highest percentage of donations to the school worldwide.
Alumni include the following individuals, with current or past positions in parentheses: Kevin McGrath (CEO of Digital Angel), Christopher Sinclair (CEO of PepsiCo) and Peter Dolan (CEO of Bristol-Myers Squibb).
