Are you ready to take your business and leadership to the next level? Consider applying for the Tuck-WBENC Executive Program, a six-day intensive experience exclusively for WBENC-Certified WBEs taught by professors at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College.

The Tuck-WBENC Executive Program is a concentrated learning experience designed to help WBENC-Certified Women's Business Enterprises (WBE) beyond the startup phase to assess, improve and grow their businesses. The program focuses on WBE skill development to increase business capacity, operations, and leadership. Participants examine their businesses as case studies throughout the week and apply core business concepts through real-world applications. Throughout the week, WBEs will:

  • Evaluate overall business strategy in rapidly-changing markets
  • Diagnose the strengths and weaknesses of operations
  • Analyze a balance sheet, income statement, and statement of cash flows
  • Develop an effective marketing strategy
  • Improve ability to communicate vision and inspire teams
  • Strengthen your professional network through collaborative learning groups

WBE attendees also form a close network that continues to provide a source of support, expertise, opportunities, and strategic alliances long after graduation.

Here is what some previous participants have to say about the program:

The Tuck-WBENC Executive Program was an extraordinary experience! After five days of intense instruction by A-list professors and amazing interaction with over 50 successful business women, I returned to my company with more knowledge, more inspiration, and more energy than ever before! In addition to incredible one-on-one interaction with Len and Ella, I had a wonderful opportunity to meet briefly with Pam and Candace to discuss specific growth strategies for my business. The entire experience was a game-changer for my company! – Claudia Abercrumbie, The Abercrumbie Group
“The Tuck-WBENC Advanced Executive Program was life changing. I am a business owner, but I was never trained on how to actually manage a growing company. The top-notch professors from Tuck and the professional team at WBENC helped me learn more about executive leadership, accounting, excellent customer service, and why it’s so important to work with other WBEs. I also met a fantastic network of women that will be my advisors and friends for many years to come. Thank you WBENC for offering such a wonderful development opportunity.” – Laura Gross, Scott Circle
