Following a strong 2013, I am pleased to report that 2014 is off to a similarly great start with on-campus recruiting season for first-year students now in full swing.
The Career Development Office (CDO) team has been hard at work helping first years prepare for on-campus interviews and catching up with second years who are back on campus and continuing their job searches. This is an extremely busy and fun time for us at the CDO and for the entire community, which pulls together in typical Tuck fashion in support of our students and their career objectives. This level of care and attention from across the institution is one of the things that truly sets Tuck apart from other MBA programs.
Here are a few career-related highlights I recently shared with the deans and faculty at Tuck. The news is great, so it was a fun update to give!
Strong Wrap-up to 2013 Tuck’s class of 2013 had what I believe is the highest level of employment at graduation of any top MBA program, along with an extremely high level of compensation. The total average compensation for T’13s, including base, signing bonuses, and other compensation came out to $183,000.
Finance Careers Have Rebounded 30 percent of Tuck students from the class of 2013 entered the financial services industry across a breadth of firms in investment banking, investment management, private equity, and insurance. We anticipate a comparable level for the 2014 class.
Consulting is Big 20 percent of the class of 2014 have accepted offers from McKinsey, Bain, and Boston Consulting Group, the highest number of graduating students heading to these firms in recent memory.
More than 130 companies will recruit on campus at Tuck this year, an increase of nearly 10 percent over last year. Tuesday marked the kickoff of our four-week, on-campus recruiting season for summer internships with leading MBA hiring firms visiting Tuck.
Back to mock interviews!
