The program is currently only available to PhD students at Dartmouth. Students must apply to and be admitted to the MBA program. 

 While application and admission to the MBA program can occur at any point while enrolled in the PhD program, it's recommended that students apply in the third or fourth year of their program. 

Students are encouraged to meet with advisors for the PhD/MBA Program, including deans Robert Hansen at Tuck, Brian Pogue of Thayer, or Kerry Landers of the Dartmouth Graduate Studies Office. 

It is important that PhD students show strong academic ability as well as demonstrated potential for leadership, and they should be able to articulate well why the MBA degree will help them achieve their goals.


Dartmouth College is accredited by the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education (CIHE) of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). Accreditation is a non-governmental, non-profit, self-regulatory, peer review process based on rigorous standards.

Programme Structure

The PhD experience will be counted as post-bachelors degree work experience. Matriculating students must enter with the regular Tuck class in the fall and complete the required first-year Tuck core curriculum. 

Students are expected to participate in an internship during the summer between their first and second Tuck years, to reinforce the MBA experience. Courses taken during the PhD program will be counted as the equivalent of one term's worth of electives.

Dartmouth offers full financial support to all students in doctoral programs. Financial support includes a paid yearly stipend or fellowship at a minimum of $24,000. Students generally do not need to pay any tuition from their stipend as doctoral tuition is typically paid, or scholarship arrangements are made. Financial support is usually supplied for the entire duration of a student’s enrollment in their doctoral program, although support terms may differ slightly by program.

Financial Aid at the master's level differs by program. For specific information please visit the department websites, links for which can be found on our programs and courses page. If you have further questions, please consult with the program staff.SPECIAL FELLOWSHIP OPPORTUNITIES
