Who Should Attend

Leaders From the Playing Field and the Battle Field

This program is designed for individuals who have spent their career in the armed forces or elite athletics and who are on the cusp of a new phase in their life. Next Step seeks applicants who have a strong desire to succeed in a business career and the leadership qualities to make an impact in the civilian world.

Candidates should have at least three years of experience in the military or as a post-graduate elite athlete and be recently separated/retired or be close to doing so. The program curriculum is designed for participants with no educational background in business and is suitable for any career stage. These candidates will benefit immensely—and almost immediately—from Next Step: Transition to Business, obtaining the edge they desire to transition successfully into a new and rewarding career.

Tuck educates wise leaders to better the world of business. We hope you’ll join us and let us make a difference in your professional development journey.
