Elective Curriculum

With the core curriculum as a foundation and more than 100 electives to choose from, you can tailor your Tuck education to meet your needs and interests.

The depth and breadth of our elective offerings allow students to focus on specific areas of study within the context of the broad perspective and cross-functional knowledge required in top management positions.

Behind each elective is the expertise of one of our thought-leading faculty. And our faculty's expertise covers key disciplines in depth. Our Marketing group has experts on marketing communications, database marketing, pricing, marketing strategy, branding, global marketing, new product development, and consumer behavior. Our Operations Management group has experts on supply chain management, spreadsheet-based modeling and simulation, service operations, information technology and business strategies, and process development. Our Finance, Accounting, and Economics group has experts on investments, corporate governance, international economics, asset pricing, auctions and game theory, capital structures, portfolio management, management controls, corporate valuation, and private equity finance. Our Strategy and Management group has experts on innovation and technological change, organizational design, hypercompetition and commoditization, leadership, mergers and acquisitions, and negotiations.

But Tuck provides the opportunity to go beyond today's theories and knowledge. Through one of our Research-to-Practice Seminars, you will have the unique opportunity to explore an important managerial issue right alongside a professor and learn how to acquire useful new knowledge throughout your career.

More than one-third of our students participate in an independent study, working with a faculty advisor.
