“Tuck isn’t just about nice people who get along; it’s about students learning how to work together to achieve success. ”
I visited Tuck on a Saturday in February and had planned to take a look around on my own. But right away I ran into a student who gave me a tour and introduced me to another student who spent two and a half hours with me—two complete strangers, out of the blue, on a Saturday. That showed me right away how Tuck students work to create a community. And Tuck isn’t just about nice people who get along; it’s about students learning how to work together to achieve success. I had anticipated that any top MBA program would be super-competitive, but Tuck also turned out to be super-collaborative—which is how organizations should be. When I left that day in February, Tuck was my first choice.
