Similar Academic Programs
Harvard. If the general management emphasis and case study approach sound appealing, you’ll of course want to look into the ultimate case study school. Other than teaching method, though, the two schools are quite different, particularly in class size. (HBS is the largest of the top-tier schools and Tuck is one of the smallest.)
Yale. Yale School of Management offers a small class size and an integrated core curriculum that focuses on the various stakeholders in business, including the customer, investor, manager, employee, and so forth. If Tuck’s broad, general management curriculum interests you, then be sure to check out Yale as well.
Virginia (Darden). Darden shares a strong emphasis on teaching and academics, particularly in its usage of the case method and emphasis on participation. Students and faculty also interact frequently, in part due to Darden’s smaller class size (~335), another similarity to Tuck.
Michigan (Ross). While Ann Arbor is a larger college town than Hanover, Ross shares a similar climate and culture with Tuck. Its Multidisciplinary Action Project (MAP) is the closest parallel to Tuck’s first-year project, and it shares a strong general management focus.
Western Ontario (Ivey). Ivey also remains committed to the case study method, feeling that it best prepares students to tackle real-world problems. The only case-based business school in Canada, Ivey also offers a winter climate similar to Tuck’s.
