E-boot camp

September 29, 2000

The Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, in the US, is partnering University Access, an online learning company, to develop an online version of the business school's business bridge programme.

The programme introduces arts graduates to global business practices and decision-making so they are better prepared for a transition to a business career. It serves as a "business boot camp" for top juniors and seniors as well as for graduates joining blue-chip corporations.

The programme will be offered from November as a year round alternative to the intensive 30-day summer sessions on offer at Dartmouth and Oxford University.
