Because all our students start with a solid foundation of general management education, our graduates can handle any management position in any organization. This rigorous training has distinguished our students as knowledgeable managers and willing collaborators, so we encourage our students to explore beyond their previous work experience. Our programs for preparing students for success in the job search include:
The Tuck Career Advisor Program for second-year students pairs students with mentors at the highest level of their professions, drawn from Tuck's board of overseers and other senior alumni. The program introduces students to the long-term views of executives who have been through multiple career decisions and market cycles. The mentors provide strategic career advice and serve as sounding boards for tactical job search questions.
Throughout the year, student clubs travel to industry hubs across the U.S. and in Asia to meet with leading companies. The Finance Club takes an annual trip to Wall Street, the Consulting Club visits top firms in Boston, the Technology Club travels to high tech companies in the Silicon Valley and Boston, the Health Care club visits a wide range of firms in San Francisco and Boston, and the Asia Business Club helps coordinate a club trip to Asia. All clubs are encouraged to plan industry trips based on student interest. These visits help students target industries and network with companies for summer internships and full-time jobs.
Networking opportunities abound for Tuck students. Since the alumni database is open to students, you'll be able to contact any Tuck graduate. You'll have many ways to make strong connections with the corporate world, through such avenues as visiting executives, the Allwin Initiative for Corporate Citizenship, company briefings, alumni panels, Tuck's research centers, club trips, and more.
