Poised for success, Tuck’s dynamic class of 2018 brings to campus a diverse set of backgrounds, experiences, and accomplishments.

The class is comprised of 285 students, with professional backgrounds ranging from consulting (20 percent) and financial services and real estate (18 percent), to investment banking and private equity (12 percent), government, military and nonprofit (10 percent), and technology (9 percent), retail (9 percent), and health care (4 percent). 18 percent of the class come from U.S. minority groups, while 30 percent of the class are citizens of countries outside the United States, representing 35 nationalities around the globe. 51 percent of the class majored in humanities and social sciences as undergraduates, while another 26 percent hold degrees in STEM-related fields, with business and finance making up the remaining 23 percent of the class.
 
But there’s much more to the class of 2018 than statistics, Patricia Harrison, senior associate director of admissions, tells Poets & Quants. “In the short time that they’ve been on campus, we have noticed their humility and empathy in particular,” she says. “They are open to ideas and experiences different than their own and seem acutely aware of how their actions impact others.”
 
Central to Tuck’s mission of educating wise leaders to better the world of business is a distinctly immersive, trust-based community that fosters aspirational growth and the development of wisdom.
 
“The students who make up our wonderful class of 2018 are vital contributors to this community,” says Dean Matthew Slaughter. “Their diverse set of backgrounds enrich and strengthen a learning environment that is personal, connected, and transformative.”
