Tuck Welcomes the Record-Setting Class of 2020

The Tuck class of 2020 represents 42 countries, is comprised of 45 percent women, and holds all-time high test scores.

The newest class at Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business affirms that wise leadership is indeed a global aspiration. 

The 287 students that comprise Tuck’s 2020 class represent 42 countries by citizenship—a 10 percent increase from last year’s class.

“It’s evident that Tuck’s mission to better the world of business, the aptitudes therein encompassed, and the values practiced in the Tuck community resonate with rising leaders around the world,” says Luke Anthony Peña, executive director of admissions and financial aid. 

Applications to Tuck increased to 2,621, an uptick from the year prior.

Including dual citizens and U.S. permanent residents, 36 percent of the 2020 class is international. The class bested Tuck’s previous record for the number of women in a class, enrolling a record 45 percent, the highest percentage in the school’s history. 

T’20s are smart and accomplished. The average GMAT score for the class is 722, sustaining last year’s all-time high, and the GRE averages (163 verbal, 161 quant) are also the highest in Tuck’s history. Counting only their most recent jobs, these first-year students come to Tuck from 225 unique employers, and have on average more than five years of professional experience.

“We in admissions are continually inspired by the diversity of student pathways to Tuck, but even more so their eagerness to contribute to the community once they arrive on campus,” Peña says. “We look forward to seeing how the T’20s will transform Tuck as student leaders, as well as the companies and communities they’ll lead as alumni.”
