Not all students pushed themselves

Comments

Fuqua has great staff and professors that are truly dedicated to making it a great school. You will build lasting relationships that I imagine cannot be matched by the school's peers

school culture, housing, weather, traffic, and beautiful campus if not the largest in U.S

Downers

it seems fuqua is good at every aspect, but not best at any one. Consulting is good but not best. finance is good but not leading.

Comments

Access to top tier firms, consulting and investment banking. Mid-sized, get to know most of your classmates. Excellent location - low cost of living, easy access to the Northeast, Midwest, and the South. Duke name is strong.

Downers

Heavy influence of the social sector. Not a fan of several of the core classes.

Comments

Sports scene is awesome. Faculty is top notch. One of the best groups of finance faculty I've seen.

Uppers

Duke was a fantastic experience for business school. The faculty is routinely ranked the best amongst business schools and your fellow students will come from a diverse range of business/industry backgrounds, which is a refreshing change from other top 10 programs such as Wharton where everyone is from Finance, or Kellogg where everyone is from marketing... Additionally, the school as a whole does a great job of integrating its grad schools and students into the overall campus experience so you really feel like you're a part of the larger Duke community, and not just the business school. Plus, hard to beat floor seats at Cameron!

Downers

If you're from a coastal city, Durham can feel a bit small and removed from the action, and its not the easiest place in the world for spouses to continue their careers, if you have one. The Triangle is continually getting better in this regard, but its still not Boston, Chicago, The Bay Area, etc. That said, its a nice change of pace from the big cities.

Comments

If you're expecting a "southern" experience, look elsewhere. Duke is located in the south, but not of the south - the majority of your peers will be from the north east or west coast, which mirrors the undergrad student body as well, which is over 90% out of state students.

Academics

The program is competitive as a normal distribution is applied to determine grades. Academics are superior and the method of teaching is both through lecture and through case study. The faculty is extremely friendly and willing to help students succeed. The characteristic that separates Duke fom other schools is the focus on teamwork and leadership development. Although the program is very competitive the willingness of students to help one another is impressive.

Quality of Life

The quality of life is another aspect that sets Duke apart from other schools. It has a very friendly environment and is very friendly to partners.

Admissions

Comparatively high GMAT score. Required interview for addmissions. Must display qualities associated with teamwork and have demonstrated experience of leadership.

Great faculty. They really go after the intuition than just theory and formula. Duke interns have done much better than other BSchool interns as per my knowledge.

Admissions

Standard top tier B-School admission process. Essays and interview are most important.
