Next Step: Transition to Business Program

November 30, 2017

Next Step: Transition to Business provides you with a tightly integrated on-campus experience at one of the world’s leading business schools. Our program is specifically designed to leverage your own real-world experiences in ways that will accelerate a successful transition into a rewarding and meaningful career in business. Each day, you’ll be challenged by faculty and your peers—individuals singularly devoted to excellence, whether in service to their country or on the field of play. You’ll be immersed in professional development and business leadership activities, building new competencies with every new experience.

From your first day on campus, you’ll be actively engaged in classes taught by some of Tuck’s best faculty. You’ll be challenged to make decisions, not merely memorize facts. Next Step’s curriculum is designed to give you the strong foundation in business acumen necessary to be competitive in today’s job market. The skills you gain during the program are the same skills that hiring managers look for in successful candidates.

During Next Step, you will:

Build a business toolkit
Next Step examines a wide range of business disciplines and topics to give you the tools to apply to a variety of business sectors and functions, as well as to entrepreneurial pursuits.

Translate experience into business competency
Through assessments, experiential learning activities, and workshops, Next Step helps you translate your non-business experience into competencies that are relevant to the business world. You’ll also learn how to identify the personal leadership characteristics that will be useful in your future career and the leadership traits that you should focus on developing.

Strengthen your career development skills
Whether you have a specific career in mind or are looking to explore different fields, during Next Step you’ll have the opportunity to learn more about yourself and your career options using many of the same tools taught in Tuck’s renowned MBA program.

Additionally, career-development activities in the program, including career assessments, group and one-on-one workshops, career panels, and presentations, ensure that you’ll have the skills and knowledge to continue your forward momentum once you leave campus.
