Women at Tuck

You can take a Tuck MBA and run with it—wherever you choose. Start your own business. Change careers. Make a difference in your community. A Tuck MBA is about effective leadership, and every organization needs leaders. There's no limit to the doors it can open.

Tuck positions women for successful careers by helping students and alumnae make the best connections—with each other and with businesses. We are active in a range of organizations and offer many advantages and opportunities for Tuck women.
