It’s officially spring in Hanover, and our students are enjoying their last days on the ski slopes before trading in their ski boots and mittens for hiking boots and t-shirts.
March was a busy time here in Admissions with the team gearing up for two big days this month. First, March 18 was our Round 2 decision day. Congratulations to the newest members of the class of 2023! We are excited to connect, welcome you to our community, and give you the information you need to make your MBA decision. For those of you still looking to apply this cycle, the Round 3 deadline is March 29 at 5 P.M. EST and our rolling Round 4 begins April 1 and ends on June 1. As always, the Tuck360 Blog is an excellent resource for anyone who wants to learn more about our essays, letters of reference, and four admissions criteria.
March also brought with it Women’s History Month which provided our community with an opportunity to pause and celebrate the extraordinary women who have paved the way at Tuck . From Martha Fransson T’70 who came to Tuck in 1968 as the first woman student on campus, to alumnae and leaders like SurveyMonkey CMO Leela Srinivasan T’06, we honor the Tuck women who have, and continue to, better the world through business. Our commitment to building a program with a diversity of perspectives and experiences is bolstered by our current Tuck Class of 2022, of which 49 percent are women. This milestone surpassed records and reinforced Tuck’s reputation as a top MBA program for women leaders. Reach out to our Women in Business (WIB) Club leadership team to explore how the club provides mentorship, networking, and career development opportunities for current students, how the Tuck program facilitates their mission, and to learn more about the annual Tuck Women in Business Conference, hosted at Tuck each fall!
Spring term has officially kicked off and last week first-year students met for the first time to embark on their First-Year Projects (FYP)—a major highlight of the spring semester. This year, 56 student teams will work with myriad clients across industries on their top business challenges, ranging from marketing and branding to strategy and operations. For our second-years, who are nearing the end of their Tuck journey, these final months are a time to look forward to their post-Tuck plans and reflect on all they’ve learned and experienced during their two years at Tuck. To celebrate the outgoing class and to maximize the potential of the spring term, Tuck has created a special initiative, Tuck Rising: Spring '21 for T'21s—a series of opt-in programming and events to support T’21s in making lasting connections with classmates, faculty and alumni.
The transitional month of March is always interesting at Tuck. The change of seasons and academic terms require many of us to take stock of the months that have passed and consider the rest of the year to come. Although summer is still a few months away, for those of you who enjoy a good summer reading list, check out these suggestions from ten Tuck professors who recently shared their must-read books for 2021. If you’re looking to bolster your bookshelf, this list is definitely one to peruse.

“After 13 years of working on Tuck’s First-Year Project course I continue to be in awe of the enthusiasm of students, clients, faculty and staff for the course! T’22s will be spending the next eight weeks working closely with clients on their projects, supported by their team and our amazing cadre of faculty advisors. It is exciting to be part of a course that engages so many facets of the Tuck community."
