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! The entire experience was a game-changer for my company!

The Tuck-WBENC 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.
