The curriculum for the Women’s Bridge to Business program reflects an MBA core. The program immerses students in the methods, assumptions, and objectives defining an expansive range of business disciplines and topics:

  • Business CommunicationsB2B 2011 Cohort
  • Career Development
  • Corporate Finance
  • Financial Accounting
  • International Business
  • Marketing
  • Negotiations
  • Operations Management
  • Organizational Behavior
  • Personal Finance
  • Project Management
  • Strategic Management
  • Women in Business

The program emphasizes topics of particular interest to women in business. In addition to the module focusing specifically on women in business, the career development workshops examine gender dynamics in interviewing and salary negotiation, and the students interact with women executives both on campus and at corporate sites.

B2B folderProgram content is organized into twenty-seven (27) 2.5-hour modules. During the program’s three weeks, students participate in a 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. module each Monday through Friday and a 1:00 to 3:30 module each Monday through Thursday (B2B does not meet Friday afternoons).

The Bridge to Business program values pedagogical variety. Students attend lectures, read and discuss cases, talk with panels of women executives, engage in classroom exercises, conduct online business simulations, and visit corporate offices and meet managers at companies such as Turner Broadcasting and PWC.

Two unique features of the B2B curriculum are our Executive Alumnae Panel and our Young Alumnae Panel. From 2014 through 2017, B2B students had wonderful interactions with the following panelists:
