It was another banner year in admissions for Dartmouth College’s Tuck School of Business. Among students who will be matriculating to Tuck this fall, the average GMAT score stood at 726 — marking, for the second year in a row, a new record for the Ivy League b-school. In addition, 45% of the members of the Tuck Class of 2024 are female — just shy of the 46% of last year’s class. This figure is significantly higher than most of Tuck’s peer institutions.
As Marc Ethier reports for Poets & Quants in a piece entitled, “Dartmouth Tuck’s MBA Class Of 2024: Another Record GMAT,” “The new Tuck class has a widely diverse background, like those before it. Growth occurred in multiple categories: number of unique employers: 227 to 232; amount of professional experience: 65 months to 67; number of undergraduate majors: 72 to 76. Students with advanced degrees increased to 12% of the class from 11%; those with STEM majors in undergrad grew to 30% from 28%, and business majors from 27% to 28%. Only humanities majors declined, though they are still a plurality, to 41% from 45%. Students with partners increased from 25% to 31%, while students with kids inched up to 4% from 5%. However, those who are first in their family to graduate from a four-year college or university declined from 16% to 11%.”
We salute Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business for leading the way among their peer institutions in admitting and enrolling so many women. And we congratulate the school on another record year in boosting their average GMAT score.
