The Smith-Tuck Business Bridge Program

The Tuck Business Bridge Program is offered 4 times a year.  Two summer sessions, each 4 weeks long, are offered on the Tuck School of Business Campus. Two accelerated three-week sessions are also offered: December Bridge on the Tuck School campus, and Smith-Tuck Bridge on the Smith Campus, for women students only. 

Three Week Summer Intensive Program for College Women on the Smith College campus, Northampton, MA

This past May, the inaugural Smith-Tuck Business Bridge program for women was launched at Smith College in Northampton, MA. Thirty-seven women from liberal arts colleges across the country participated in this intensive three-week program that teaches critical business fundamentals. Taught by faculty from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth, the rigorous curriculum covers accounting, marketing, spreadsheet modeling, and culminates in a team-based corporate valuation project, which is presented to panels of business leaders.

We are eagerly recruiting for this year's cohort, and welcome your help. The program will run May 23 - June 10, 2016, which will allow students to participate and still have time to complete a valuable summer internship. This is an excellent opportunity for a student to gain extremely valuable skills, and immediately begin to use them in industry. If you know a college-age woman who is seeking to build her skills and knowledge in business, we hope you will encourage her to apply. The tuition for the three-week program is $7,500, which includes room and board. Financial aid is available.

Application Deadline: First round: March 1, 2016; Second round: April 1, 2016.
