MBA Advisory Board

The MBA advisory board, established in 2002, is an alumni board which focuses exclusively on Tuck's MBA program, providing advice and perspective on issues of importance to the MBA experience.

The board meets twice a year to discuss matters related to the MBA curriculum, the admissions process, student life, career planning, and alumni activities. Its members are prominent business practitioners who offer a perspective based on their experience of Tuck's MBA program and informed by significant expertise in the workforce.
