The Tuck School of Business is the graduate business school of
Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, United States. Founded in
1900, Tuck is the oldest graduate school of business in the world, and
was the first institution to offer master's degrees in business
administration. It is one of six Ivy League business schools, and it
consistently ranks in the top ten of national business school
rankings. Tuck grants only one degree, the Master of Business
Administration, alongside shorter programs for executives and recent
college graduates, as well as opportunities for dual degrees with
other institutions. The school places a heavy emphasis on its
tight-knit and residential character, and has a student population
that hovers near 500 students and a full-time faculty of 46. Tuck
claims over 8,400 living alumni in a variety of fields, and currently
enjoys the highest rate of alumni donation of any business school in
the United States.

Wikiquote of the day:
From childhood's hour I have not been As others were — I have not seen
As others saw — I could not bring My passions from a common spring —
From the same source I have not taken My sorrow — I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone — And all I lov'd — I lov'd alone.
-- Edgar Allan Poe
