Duke - The Fuqua School of Business

Student Life

Tyler L. says:

The 4th goal of your student life experience is to have FUN! The MMS program is demanding and rigorous, so it's important that you find time to recharge. From silly competitions to tenting out for basketball tickets to blowing off steam at Fuqua Fridays (a longstanding Fuqua happy hour tradition), fun should be an indispensible part of your experience here.

Fuqua is your world; make it what you want it to be. Once enrolled, you are automatically a member of the MMS Student Association (MMSA) with access to a full range of professional and cultural clubs as well as student-led social activities.

Your experience here will shape you both professionally and personally with rich, engaging programming that focuses on:

Leadership and Teamwork

Teamwork is the foundation of any successful business, as is leadership. A significant part of the MMS experience will be honing your teaming skills while teaching you how to hold leadership roles both in and out of the classroom.


While academics are at the core of higher learning, a complete educational experience involves more than classroom instruction. Duke University, Fuqua, and Durham offer you many meaningful opportunities to connect with fellow students and the community. 


Participating in social activities is an important part of the graduate school experience. It will help you build and cement a professional network for the future and create friendships that last a lifetime.
