From September 30 to October 5, 2018, 54 women business owners gathered in Palisades, NY to participate in a 6-day intensive business course led by the top professors from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College.

The Tuck-WBENC Executive Program, brought to you by IBM, is an executive education program focused on WBE skill development to increase business capacity, operations, and leadership.

Throughout the week, participants examined their businesses as case studies and learned how to apply core business concepts through real-world applications. The program challenged participants to look at overall business strategy through the lens of finance, marketing. operations, management and leadership. Participants were engaged in lectures, discussions, and simulations designed to challenge them wherever they were in the business lifecycle.
