Business School Overview
The Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College offers graduate programs in these departments and concentrations: accounting, consulting, e-commerce, economics, entrepreneurship, finance, general management, health care administration, human resources management, industrial management, international business, leadership, manufacturing and technology management, marketing, not-for-profit management, production/operations management, organizational behavior, portfolio management, public policy, real estate, supply chain management/logistics, quantitative analysis/statistics and operations research, tax, and technology. Its tuition is full-time: $56,160 per year. At graduation, 85.8 percent of graduates of the full-time program are employed.
The Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth touts its intimate campus community, which graduate students are immediately immersed in. Students are grouped into small study teams when they begin at Tuck, and more than half of the student body chooses to live on campus in Hanover, N.H.
Hands-on academics begin early as well; in the mandatory First-Year Project course, students get to develop business plans for existing companies. Business students can specialize in areas like finance or strategy with elective courses. Students can earn a concurrent degree at Dartmouth, adding a medical degree through the Dartmouth Medical School or a master’s of public health at the school’s Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice. Students can also complete a dual degree at another institution. Students can graduate with a Dartmouth M.B.A. and a master’s in public administration (M.B.A./M.P.A.) from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government or a master’s in environmental law and policy at Vermont Law School. Tuck does not offer a Ph.D. program or part-time degree options.
Outside of class, there are about 40 student organizations to check out, and Dartmouth’s campus has its own ski slope, equestrian center, and golf course. Notable Tuck alumni include Christopher Sinclair, a former CEO of PepsiCo, and Peter Dolan, a former CEO of Bristol-Myers Squibb, a global pharmaceutical company.
