In 1769, John Wentworth, the Royal Governor of New Hampshire, signed the charter to establish an institution that offers the best education. Governor Wentworth provided a land on the banks of the Connecticut River that divides New Hampshire and Vermont. The Tuck School of business was founded in 1900 as the Graduate School of Management due to the efforts of William Jewett Tucker (then President of Dartmouth College) and his friend Edward Tuck (international financier and philanthropist). The School was formed due to the generous gifts endowed upon by Mr. Tuck and the School was named as Amos Tuck School of Business Administration in 1941 in honor of Edward Tuck’s father. Today, the School is known all over the world as Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth.
Tuck’s mission is to provide the world’s best educational preparation for a career of business leadership and to have a faculty of acknowledged thought leaders who are outstanding teachers.
The core curriculum aims at providing rigorous training to the students on all the functional disciplines of business and hence, Tuck graduates have achieved success at every level by demonstrating cross-functional skills. The comprehensive core courses of the key functional disciplines of business are well integrated, so that the students can view a problem from multiple perspectives before arriving at a solution. Students can choose electives that align with their specific areas of interests and thus, deepen their understanding on the specific industry or job function. In order to accelerate the leadership development process, students are provided with a rich environment with extensive focus on leadership skills, interpersonal relationships and productive collaboration. A Personal Leadership course during the first year allows the students to reflect within themselves and compare their leadership skills with how others perceive them. This becomes the foundation for the Personal Leadership Plan, which highlights the various aspects of leadership behaviors that the students need to develop and how they plan to achieve it. The leadership labs play a crucial role here as they ensure that the objectives of the Personal Leadership Plan are met. Students get unlimited access to practice their leadership skills through academic coursework, experiential learning opportunities and student clubs. Further, the Alan Smith D’52 T’53 Visiting Executive Program connects the students with senior executives and business leaders from different sectors, who share their experiences with the students.
In order to provide a holistic view of conducting business in an international space, there are various means such as global cases, class discussions and materials used by the School. The First Year Project FYP gives an opportunity for the students to work in teams on a consulting assignment for a client or develop a business plan for an entrepreneurial venture and apply their skills to resolve complex real-world business challenges. Tuck Center for Business and Society offers a research travel program for students interested in conducting meaningful research in environmentally or socially focused projects. The Onsite Global Consulting course is mutually beneficial to the clients as well as the students. Students travel to an international destination and conduct primary research on-site for three months. Students develop cost-effective solutions for the clients who are non-profit organizations, multinational corporations and government agencies by rendering consulting services under the guidance of advisors, who carry extensive project management and consulting skills. Students learn to leverage their business and management skills, and navigate successfully through new business environments and cultures to provide cutting-edge sustainable solutions to the clients. Students delve into the current business practices and trends in countries such as Brazil, China, Italy, Turkey, etc. by participating in the Global Insight Expeditions. These faculty-led courses are 8-10 days long, where students get to interact with local businesses, entrepreneurs, and non-profit organizations of the host country. Students can spend an entire term at one of the partner schools through the Exchange Programs and immerse into the culture and business environment of the host country.
The School is located in Hanover, New Hampshire. The town is spread along the Connecticut River in Grafton County. Hanover is a destination for adventurous people with activities such as canoeing and kayaking along the Connecticut River. Tourists with an adventurous streak can head for skiing and snowboarding activities at New Hampshire’s Appalachian Mountains. Nature lovers can indulge in understanding the environment, wildlife and birds at Vermont Institute of Natural Science (VINS).
Tuck students are given access to a comprehensive suite of resources and tools that would help them at every step of their careers. Tuck’s Career Development Office organizes annual treks to Boston, New York City and Silicon Valley, where students can connect with industry experts and gain insights into crafting their careers in a specific industry. The Office supports the students throughout the job search process by providing individual guidance from career coaches on the various career paths and helping them select the best-fit job offer. The small class size structure enables the career coaches to connect with each student at a personal level and learn about their career goals. Students get extensive support from the alumni who are equally passionate about guiding them in their job search journeys.
