Military Veterans

Veterans bring a high level of leadership, teamwork, and grace under pressure to Tuck.
 

They contribute meaningfully in the classroom as well as to their study groups and project teams. Military MBAs have proven themselves in multiple areas and corporate recruiters value the knowledge and experience they add, gained from their years of service and from their MBA education.
 



Applying to Tuck

All applicants are required to complete and online application. We are honored to waive the $250 application fee for applicants who are U.S. military personnel past and present. More information available here.

Tuck offers an open interview policy, which provides all applicants the opportunity to interview. Interviews are scheduled online on a first-come, first-served basis, so please request an interview as soon as you decide to apply. On-campus interviews begin in September. Please schedule your interview online at least five days prior to the date you'd like to visit. Your interview must be completed by the published deadline for the round in which you are applying. Please note that all applicant-initiated interviews are conducted on campus only. While an interview is not a required part of the application, we hope you will take advantage of the opportunity to visit and interview prior to submitting your application.

Funding your MBA

An MBA is a significant investment of time and financial resources. In addition to the financial aid and scholarship opportunities offered, Tuck also participates in the Post-9/11 GI Bill® and Yellow Ribbon Program, which allows institutions to enter into a voluntary agreement with the VA to fund tuition and fee expenses that exceed the annual VA cap. We are proud to support our veterans, whose strong leadership, sense of responsibility and commitment are qualities that are important to our community.

Careers

We understand that many of the students who come to Tuck having served in the military pursue an MBA with the goal of moving on to new opportunities outside of the military. There are many resources available to students who are career switching, including:

Tuck has active relationships with more 900 organizations. Top hiring companies include Amazon, Google, Bain & Company, McKinsey & Company, Cargill, Colgate-Palmolive, Procter & Gamble, and Morgan Stanley.

Community

Veterans are a vibrant and vital part of what makes the Tuck community distinctive among the world’s top MBA programs. Whether they are sharing their unique leadership skills or demonstrating what it means to be a part of a team, veteran students contribute greatly to the Tuck community.

Coming to Tuck with a partner and/or family? There are many clubs, organizations and resources to make both you and your partner feel part of Tuck and the greater Hanover community from the day you arrive on campus.
