Winter Bridge Applications Open August 1


Move to the inside track, explore exciting career paths, and tap into new possibilities through Tuck Bridge.

You are unique, and your career is uniquely yours. Whether you’re looking for an internship or a full-time job, the Business Bridge Program offers you the tools, networks, and opportunities you’ll need to succeed. The Business Bridge Program at Dartmouth provides you with essential business skills by combining an intensive classroom experience at a world-class business school and the hands-on training of an internship–all designed to help you launch a rewarding career.

Business Bridge® is designed for undergraduate rising sophomores through graduating seniors with liberal arts or STEM majors, as well as candidates 1-5 years removed from college pursuing advanced degrees in non-business fields or working in non-business careers. Students earn a certificate upon completion of the intensive three-week program, which requires more time commitment than a full-time job. Expect 50-60 hours of program involvement per week (class and evening study group time). All Bridge classes/events are scheduled in Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) and students are required to be present for all synchronous (live) programming. For these reasons, students cannot attend Bridge if they have a concurrent job, internship, or if they are participating in other classes (ie. Dartmouth Sophomore Summer).

You will gain intimate access to MBA faculty and your peers through daily classes and office hours.
