When you select an MBA program, you are not just choosing your learning environment but are also committing to becoming part of a community. Each Thursday, we offer a window into life “beyond the MBA classroom” at a top business school.
Tuck ‘Tails are “happy hours” that occur almost every Thursday at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College. Open to everyone on campus, they are typically sponsored by a different student group each week. Faculty and students gather over beer, wine, and other refreshments. A recent graduate we interviewed noted, “The Tuck ’Tails are fun and usually linked to different events and clubs. They are chill but sometimes lead to bigger parties!” The events are generally held on campus, but when the weather is nice, the festivities are sometimes moved to a tent outside or onto the deck in the school’s Living and Learning Complex. Tuck ‘Tails are also hosted around the world by local alumni—in 2016, global ‘Tails have taken place at such cities as Mexico City, London, Sydney, and Toronto.
