Dartmouth (Tuck). If you’re looking for a very tight-knit student body whose strong culture builds lifelong bonds among its students, Tuck’s concentrated social and academic environment creates a deep sense of connection with the school and the highest alumni giving rates of any top-tier school. Unlike MIT Sloan, however, the campus is not urban in nature.
Chicago (Booth). Booth attracts intellectuals who enjoy a more casual environment than you might find in the harder-charging schools like Wharton, Columbia, or Harvard. Both Sloan and Booth environments emphasize rigorous academics balanced with a welcoming, friendly student body.
Ross (Michigan). Perhaps it’s the cold weather, but there’s something about these Midwest and Northeastern schools that instills a culture of unity, humility, and fun. Ross is no exception. Located in idyllic Ann Arbor, Michigan, the Ross School has a greater connection to its undergraduate traditions than many business schools, largely thanks to its large bachelor’s of Business Administration program and the University of Michigan’s dominant sports programs.
Berkeley (Haas). Although it has a smaller enrollment than MIT Sloan, Haas’s student body is also known for being very collegial and friendly with an emphasis on collaboration and teamwork. Its parent university, University of California, Berkeley, is also a highly regarded research institution. Both business schools are located on the outskirts of their respective campuses, and both leverage the technology and biotech strengths of their parent institutions to form cross-campus initiatives and organizations.
