Why Tuck?

People often say that Tuck is a transformative experience, and I think they’re right. Tuck teaches you how to think strategically and prioritize. Some of the lessons taught in courses like Competitive Strategy can also be applied to how you spend your time, what you focus on, and how you approach your goals. Another transformative skill is determining the right questions to ask and knowing where to find the answers. We’re certainly trained to think with an analytical mindset in our courses, but the broader Tuck MBA experience—including interactions with classmates, professors, and alumni—further reinforces the practice of thinking about who it would be helpful to talk to, and then going to get their perspective.
