Dartmouth College’s Tuck School of Business Adds “Niceness” to its MBA Admissions Criteria

The school’s revised admissions criteria include personal qualities like “smart, nice, accomplished and aware”

Dartmouth College’s Tuck School of Business has revised its admissions criteria for MBA applicants, with “niceness” among a longer list of desirable personal qualities.

The school lists four key qualities they’re looking for in candidates: smart, nice, accomplished, and aware. 

“What we’re looking for is emotional intelligence, empathy, and respect for others,” says  Luke Anthony Peña, executive director of admissions and financial aid.

Applicants will have the chance to display these qualities in their application essays.

The school says that since arriving last year, Peña “has made it his goal for the Tuck application experience to be the most enjoyable and least stressful among top business schools”.

Other admissions process changes include clearer application round names and faster decision times.

Tuck School of Business’s first MBA application deadline is September 4, with subsequent deadlines running through to April 2019.
