Experiential Learning

The Center for Business, Government & Society provides ample opportunities for applied and integrative learning. These transformative experiences enable students to immerse themselves in issues of interest at the intersection of business, government and society during their time at Tuck, while also serving as points of access to the broader world.

Fellows Opportunities

The many fellows programs enhance the academic experience through research and experiential learning opportunities and high-quality engagements with external thought leaders to identify career pathways and develop scholarship on issues that intersect business, government & society.

UN Climate Change Talks

Climate change issues have a powerful impact on decisions made by businesses around the world. While attending climate change talks, students learn from the perspectives of other conference attendees from around the globe and share their experiences with the Tuck School of Business and the greater Dartmouth community upon their return.

Impact Investing

CBGS empowers Tuck’s future business leaders to identify investments that conform to social and environmental norms of a more sustainable global economy and contribute to the common good through a number of impact investing programs.

  • MBA Impact Investing Network & Training (MIINT) is an experiential lab designed to give students at business and graduate schools a hands-on education in impact investing. At the beginning of the academic year, Tuck students will form teams to source and conduct diligence on early stage impact investments. Students then participate in training modules around impact investing before competing on campus against other Tuck student teams. The winning team will proceed to the final competition against other leading business schools where they will present recommendations to a judging committee composed of industry leaders for a potential investment of up to $50,000.
  • Tuck Social Venture Fund (TSVF) is an experiential learning program in impact investing where students have the opportunity to make direct investments in mission-oriented businesses with the potential to make a venture-like financial return. TSVF invests in enterprises with attractive risk-adjusted financial returns and a measurable social impact. In collaboration with CE, CBGS advises and supports the student-led TSVF.

Tuck GIVES: Social Impact Summer Internships

Tuck Gives (Grants to Interns and Volunteers for the Environment and Society) is a program to recognize and financially support the efforts of current Tuck students who wish to complete internships with nonprofit or public sector organizations for the betterment of the environment and society. These internships are important for two reasons: they allow nonprofits to benefit from the skillset that Tuck students bring to the table and allow current students the financial flexibility to pursue career paths that directly give back to society.

Ecosystem Deep Dives

Ecosystem Deep Dives (EDDs) are experiential learning opportunities that immerse students into selected ecosystems, highlighting industries and/or the intersections of various industries in a given region. Led by Tuck center Directors, students explore career pathways, gain industry insights and knowledge, and engage in professional networking. Each visit is carefully chosen with purpose and intention around key business questions and is supported by expert-led insight reflection sessions. Aimed at giving students an in-depth view into early-stage companies, investments in early-stage companies, and the overall startup ecosystem, this program provides first-year students a jump start on their entrepreneurial exploration and journey. Students are immersed in an area's entrepreneurial ecosystem and the program includes connecting with founders, builders and investors across industry and stage. Learn more about the student experience by reading a write-up by Shannon Conneely T’23 and Emilie Litsas T’23 of their entrepreneurship deep dive.
