Schedule for the MHCDS program 2024-2025

We will convene on the campus of the Tuck School of Business in Hanover, NH for an intense, immersive in-person learning experience. Students can expect four 90 minute long classes per day as well as evening programming including dinner speakers, study group activities, and social events.   Housing and most meals are arranged by the MHCDS program team. 

Students will access and submit assignments, view pre-recorded lectures, meet with their study groups, and participate in weekly live class sessions through a variety of intuitive software tools such as Zoom. 

Live class sessions are on Tuesdays and students can choose to participate in either the 12 noon or 7PM (eastern US) session, based on their work schedule and preference. 

Based on rigorous feedback and evaluation from past students/alumni, we expect students to have approximately 15 hours of academic work per week. 

Students return to campus for six days of intense, immersive learning.  Housing and most meals are arranged by the MHCDS program team. 

Students continue the online portion of the curriculum. 


Students return to campus to conclude their studies, deliver final Action Learning Project report-outs, and participate in a celebration and graduation event along with invited friends and family members.  

The MHCDS program is delivered through a powerful combination of brief residential sessions at Dartmouth plus enhanced distance learning.

Over the course of 12 months, participants attend on-campus classes, complete online collaborative coursework, and take part in implementation projects where participants apply the learning they've gained through the program to initiatives at their own institutions.

The on-campus experience fosters a close community among participants and with the faculty. The distance-learning experience is rich and seamless. Using web-based tools, participants interact with classmates and faculty in real time and asynchronously.
