Where Tuck MBAs Work & What They Do

Where do Tuck MBAs work and in what industries?

With its wealth of membership data, LinkedIn is now providing a glimpse into this answer. Of course, not all Tuck MBAs are registered with the professional networking site so it’s an obviously incomplete list. Even so, the data provides an interesting window into the most likely employers of Tuckies as well as the most likely industries that attract its graduates.

Source: LinkedIn membership data

The three biggest employers of Tuck grads, according to LinkedIn membership data, are consultants: McKinsey, Bain and Boston Consulting Group. Fidelity Investments and Goldman Sachs round out the top five places that employ Tuckies who are members of LinkedIn.

Consultants such as The Parthenon Group and Cambridge Associates, which fail to make the top lists of most elite business schools, also figure prominently as employers of Tuck grads.

As is typical with all elite business schools, finance is the industry that claims the most Tuck MBAs, with 961 LinkedIn members. It is followed by consulting (613), business development (513), and marketing (481).
