Tuck offers one of the more rigid curriculums of its peers, offering little flexibility in its core curriculum, which focuses on general management. Though Courses are largely taught using the case method, there’s also a notable focus on experiential learning, as evidenced by the first year project in which students work with companies to tackle business problems. While students can pursue joint and dual degrees at tuck, the main focus is on full time MBA offerings. Since it’s a relatively smaller school, there is not as much variety in elective courses as can be found at other programs. Students are randomly segmented into four sections of about 65 people each term, meaning they study with everyone in their class by the end of the first term. The grading system at Tuck includes a scale ranging from Honors to Satisfactory Plus, Satisfactory, and Low Pass. While most students at Tuck have a record of demonstrating commitment to academics, most refrain from discussing grades, or approaching their peers with competitiveness.
