Tuck School of Business – Dartmouth College
Founded in 1900, the Tuck School of Business, the first official graduate school of management in the world, is one of the three prominent professional schools affiliated with Dartmouth College. It was established after Dartmouth received a generous donation from 19th century financier and philanthropist Edward Tuck, creating the Amos Tuck School of Administration and Finance, named for Edward’s father. In 1941, it was renamed as the Amos Tuck School of Business Administration, and then later its current iteration—the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth.

The Tuck School of Business is located in Hanover, New Hampshire, in the northwest section of the Dartmouth College campus. The campus is roughly 10 miles north of the Lebanon Municipal Airport, on the east bank of the Connecticut River.
Multiple exchange programs are offered by the business school, including with universities in Europe, Asia, and Latin America.
The Tuck School of Business is home to several prominent facilities, including the the Murdough Center, Tuck Hall, and Byrne Hall. These buildings offer state-of-the-art classrooms, board rooms, lounge areas, dining halls, and more.
The Tuck School of Business currently employs 65 full-time and clinical faculty members, that teach MBA courses across 17 areas of expertise. The faculty also contribute to Tuck’s six centers, which study topics ranging from digital strategies to healthcare to energy. Thanks to Tuck’s scale, students benefit from superior faculty-to-student ratios, small-size elective courses, and unparalleled person-to-person access to professors.
A total of 287 students are enrolled in the Dartmouth College Tuck School of Business Class of 2024, 45 percent of which are women. 43 percent of the class is made up of international students, and 31 percent are U.S. minority students.
MBA Degree Offerings
The Dartmouth College Tuck School of Business only offers a full-time, traditional MBA. There are, however, multiple joint and dual degree options, including: the MD/MBA, MPH/MBA, PhD/MBA, and MEM/MBA; and six dual degrees—the MBA/MAIR, MBA/MALD, MBA/MELP, MBA/MPA, MBA/MPA/ID, and MBA/MPP.
Dean Slaughter on How Tuck Programs Suit Military Veterans
Matthew J. Slaughter, the Paul Danos Dean of the Tuck School and the Earl C. Daum 1924 Professor of International Business, discusses how the Tuck MBA program and the school’s other business education offerings are well-suited for students with military backgrounds. "Veterans bring a direct experience and gravitas from the way that they've thrived in the military that has a direct parallel to the kind of learning we do at the Tuck School," he says.
