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. In 2008, Tuck added these seminar courses, which bring together 15 second-year students with top faculty members for a “deep dive” into a specific topic and provide a link between faculty research and its application in management. The following research-to-practice seminars were offered during the 2011–2012 academic year:
- “Organizational Alignment” with Professor William F. Joyce
- “Economics of the Credit Crisis” with Professors Robert Hansen and Manuel Adelino
- “Time in the Consumer Mind” with Professor Eleanor J. Kyung
- “Mergers and Acquisitions, Alliances, and Corporate Strategy” with Professor Margaret Peteraf
- “Management and Dynamics of Multidisciplinary Teams” with Professor Judith White
The seminars are a key component of the school’s current five-year strategic plan, Tuck 2012.
