Tuck Business Bridge Program Visits Davidson

Alice Sedgwick and Bridge Alums Mahlon Henderson '14 and Keith Durante '14

On Tuesday Sept. 10, Alice Sedgwick, a representative from the Tuck Business Bridge Program, visited Davidson College to talk to students about the Bridge Program and recruit for the 2014 program. The Bridge Program is a business four-week intensive program where students are exposed to classes taught by MBA professors in over 14 subjects including economics, accounting, marketing, corporate finance, spreadsheet modeling, and business communications. Towards the end of the program, students preform a valuation project, where they choose a company of their choice to value and present to a panel of industry professionals.

Alice spoke of the incredible individual learning experience that Bridge offers, but also Tuck’s emphasis on the importance of team work. When attending Bridge, students are assigned teams to work through homework with daily. These teams also work together in the last week of the program to preform the valuation project.

Many Davidson students have attended Bridge in the past, including me (Mahlon Henderson ’14), Keith Durante ’14, and Kara Mountcastle ’14. All these Bridge alums would be happy to answer questions about the program.

In order to apply, students must submit their resume, essays, transcript, and  SAT/ACT scores on the Tuck Bridge website. The first application is January 1, 2014.

Thank you to the Bridge Program for continuously reaching out to Davidson students!
