Financial aid is available

While there is no typical best candidate for Bridge, there are several qualities that successful candidates possess. Bridge students represent a range of experiences, ideas, and dreams. They come to Hanover with diverse backgrounds and life experiences -- from small, liberal arts colleges and large universities, representing every region of the United States as well as many countries around the world, and with majors ranging from English to engineering to economics. Successful Bridge candidates bring these qualities to our program:

Strong academic record, especially in your major

We want to see that once you commit to a course of study, you push yourself to excel.

Confidence with numbers

Business analytics are quantitative. You do not need to have previous accounting or financial math experience, or even advanced math, but we will look at your courses, work experience, and/or test scores to ensure you have the ability to be successful in the program.

Core values, as demonstrated by your extra-curricular activities

Bridge is a community based on core values of leadership, compassion, and integrity. We look for evidence that you invest yourself in activities outside the classroom that are consistent with your own core values.

Passion for collaboration and teamwork

We seek individuals who will be team players, willing to share their unique knowledge and perspectives with others. We’d love to hear about your team experience.
