BOSTON (PRWEB) OCTOBER 01, 2019
MentorWorks Education Capital Provides Income Share Agreement (ISA) funding for the Tuck Business Bridge Program at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth in a partnership announced today.
MentorWorks Education Capital is providing Income Share Agreement (ISA) financing to Tuck Business Bridge Program students to complete this innovative program without incurring up-front tuition costs. This ISA program is open to rising seniors, current seniors and students who have already completed their undergraduate programs.
“We’re thrilled to bring Tuck Bridge and MentorWorks together to combine our ISA financing with our career enhancement and networking platform to provide access for these terrific students to our career advisors and employer partners,” stated Micha Sabovik, COO and VP of Marketing for MentorWorks. “Additionally, students who meet the program’s standards and return as mentors earn repayment discounts and continue to access MentorWorks’ professional networks for their professional lifetimes. This is a unique solution that addresses the student debt crisis through a novel “fund and support” model.”
Students view the MentorWorks program as a synergistic finance and career support mechanism. One prior MentorWorks student, who recently got a job at a Wall Street company, stated, “I quickly learned the importance of having a strong network. As my network and experience grew stronger, I was able to narrow down my aspirations and my motivation to reach my goals earned me countless recognition in the workplace. I really wanted to express my gratitude and share my happy news [of employment]. I strongly believe I owe a piece of this achievement to the mission and execution of the MentorWorks program.”
MentorWorks internal models show that the Tuck Bridge program creates a 30% increase in salary, on average, for students who complete this program. This is a powerful endorsement of the value and career impact of the Tuck Bridge program. MentorWorks is dedicated to supporting programs such as Tuck Bridge that make a substantial difference in the career outcomes of students.
"Our new partnership with MentorWorks aims to expand the financing opportunities available to our excellent Business Bridge candidates; many of whom would not be able to attend the Bridge program without an ISA option," Lisa Tedeschi, Director of Undergraduate Programs at Tuck Bridge said. "We are thrilled to open the door to even more wonderful students to experience the Bridge program and our program alumni network then we have been able to in the past.”
