"Executive development should be a game-changer, a tremendous catalyst for action." -Vijay Govindarajan (VG)

Talent management and executive development are pressing imperatives in organizations today. Tuck’s custom executive education team is dedicated to helping you create executive learning experiences that address your specific needs and have impact on both your executive talent and the organizations they lead. A key component of our success is our world-class faculty. These thought leaders combine their research-based insights with real-world knowledge and global experience to help your executives apply what they are learning to their leadership and business challenges.

When you work with Tuck, you draw on the legacy of the first graduate school of management. The Tuck School of Business was founded at Dartmouth College in 1900 and served as the prototype for the many MBA-granting graduate programs that followed.

Unlike most of our competitors, Tuck offers only one degree—the full-time MBA—and a select array of executive education programs. This focus and our small scale enable us to adapt quickly and innovate, and to create a unique learning community. Since its founding, Tuck has concentrated on two overarching goals: to provide the world’s best business leadership education and to have a faculty of renowned thought leaders who are outstanding teachers.

The Tuck Custom Experience: 
Making Successful Leaders Even Better

Tuck works with successful organizations and leaders to help them become even more effective by using executive development as a strategic lever. Tuck’s custom executive education practice is characterized by several distinguishing features:

  • We cultivate meaningful partnerships with a select group of global corporations, helping them achieve game-changing results from their investment in custom executive education. Tuck staff and faculty work closely with learning and development professionals and senior business leaders to co-create the executive learning experience. For example, as Hasbro shifted from toy manufacturer to a global brand powerhouse, the company transformed its leadership development approach to bolster the talent pipeline. To reach their new goals, CEO Brian Goldner and his leadership team partnered with Tuck, read the case study in CLO magazine.
  • We design and deliver programs that develop executives' strategic mindsets. We help successful leaders become even more effective and better equipped to transform their organizations—driving innovation, growth, and cross-company collaboration. For example, the CEO and executive committee at Thomson Reuters viewed the Global Executive Program with Tuck as a vital strategic lever to achieve business goals, read the case study in Developing Leaders magazine.
  • We are responsive and flexible to meet our clients’ needs, whether that means partnering with other providers, modifying program design and learning methods, or delivering programs on our beautiful campus or at a location of their choosing. For example, BMW Group sent 75+ senior internal consultants from Germany to the Tuck campus in Hanover, NH, while NHS-Northwest has delivered their Tuck program for National Health Service CEOs in the UK.
