Tuck students have access to a comprehensive suite of resources to help with every step of the job search process – from exploring the many career options that having a Tuck MBA creates to selecting the best fit among job offers. In combination with our highly active alumni network, our programs help Tuck students achieve consistent career results – keeping Tuck on top of national MBA employment rankings.
Our Career Development Office is consistently recognized as one of the leaders in its field. We have a high ratio of career coaches to students, and all of our coaches have experience in their respective industries. They are available to students at any time for guidance, tactical advice and training. Our programs for preparing students for interview success are rigorous, and we bring all of Tuck’s resources to help students achieve that success.
Tuck’s academic curriculum, faculty, research centers, and initiatives are also integral to the career success of many students. For some students it’s a particular class that gives them access to cutting-edge thinking in their target industry. For others it’s the open access to professors that yields a promising lead. By the time that Tuck students graduate, many cite the full Tuck experience when describing what has led to their job-search success.
When you are thinking about the job search, you need to know that you’ll have access to the companies you want to work for, and that you’ll be prepared for success in the interview itself.
Our relationships with traditional recruiters of MBA talent cover all of the ‘brand names’ you’d expect from a top business school, and approximately half our students find their job through these relationships. Students also seek jobs in diverse fields, including education, nonprofit, entrepreneurship and many more.
Tuck alumni are renowned for their willingness to help students. For some, this means frequent visits to Tuck to talk about their company, host an informal networking event, or interview students. For many, it means picking up the phone or answering an email. It also means getting involved in recruiting discussions at the leadership levels to ensure that Tuck remains a core school for the company.
