#TuckLAB, a new partnership between Tuck and Dartmouth, provides students with general business skills, as well as an understanding of the core concepts and practices of #entrepreneurship. The students who were selected for this inaugural program represent all four classes at Dartmouth and include students with majors as varied as engineering and psychology. “TuckLAB is an example of Dartmouth at its best—a co-curricular program designed to help students achieve their career ambitions. We want every Dartmouth student to have the opportunity to achieve their real-world full potential, and the TuckLAB program is an important first step,” says Rick Magnuson D’79, one of the program’s key organizers.

👍 or 👎? After the biggest game of the year, the Tuck community gathered with marketing professor Kevin Lane Keller to break down the good, the bad, and the ugly of the #SuperBowlLIII ads. This year’s big winner? @budlight! The company’s “Special Delivery” spot was voted the #1 ad of the night by Tuck students. Other favorites included ads from Super Bowl veterans @audi and @pepsi, along with newcomers like @bublywater and @bumble. What were some of your favorite, or least favorite ads this year?

“Bridge made sense for me because I needed a crash course—a kind of mini-MBA,” says Corinne Prevot, @tuckbridge alumna and CEO of @skidagram, a Vermont-based headwear and accessories brand. “I didn’t have any experience in accounting, or building business models with really sophisticated Excel sheets, or talking about corporate responsibility. Bridge was an amazing crash course in all of those skills. Bridge gave me a lot of confidence and I left the program just itching to hit the ground running and start working on Skida. I haven’t slowed down since.” Read her story via the link in our bio!
