The Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College is known for its close-knit community and small faculty-to-student ratio. The school’s research-to-practice seminars complement these characteristics. An article on the school’s Tuck Today Web site explains that “International Entrepreneurship” was the first of several such seminars designed to give students insight into a real-world business issue. The seminars were conceived as a key component of the school’s strategic five-year plan, called Tuck 2012. The courses bring together 15 second-year students with top faculty for a “deep dive” into a specific topic. Research-to-practice seminars that were offered in 2014–2015 include the following:
- “Corporate Takeover”
- “Deconstructing Apple”
- “Management of Investment Portfolios”
- “Marketing Good and Evil: Consumer Moral Judgment and Well-Being”
- “Strategy in Innovation Ecosystems”
- “Time in the Consumer Mind”
