MBA Fellows Program

The Center for Digital Strategies offers an MBA Fellows program for second year students looking to expand upon their understanding of digital strategies and the impact of technology on the future of general management. The program consists of a diverse mix of students from a wide variety of backgrounds, which enhances peer-to-peer learning. Students are challenged to grow via hands-on learning opportunities, and are encouraged to build their networks and share their knowledge with the CDS community.

The program is highly competitive, with selection open to second-year students. Applications for the CDS MBA Fellows program are accepted in the Winter Term for the forthcoming academic year.

“As a fellow, I learn from my diverse and experienced peers, actively discuss the latest digital trends and challenges, and grow in both depth and breadth of knowledge and skills in the tech space. I love how the CDS, and the Fellows program in particular, allows me the space and support to dive deep into tech while at Tuck.”
Carly Wolberg T’23

What past CDS Fellows have to say about their experience:

“The Center for Digital Strategies was the community of curiosity that I came to Tuck for. The alumni and current fellows that I have met through this center have radically enhanced my understanding of the digital technology landscape. From bi-weekly digital drop-ins to the center-sponsored trek to Puerto Rico, CDS consistently delivered learning opportunities that felt real, connected, and engaged.”
Eva Grant T’22,  Corp. Development Rotational Program, Liberty Mutual


“The CDS Fellowship is competitive, which I think is critical to its value. Tuck finds ways to reward the effort of highly motivated students, and the center was a key part of that puzzle for me. I view the fellowship as an earned opportunity to go deep on tech with other students who put in the work to be well informed and value a community that will push each other. CDS also gives fellows significant domain specific support – Patrick [Wheeler, CDS Executive Director] put more time into my development at Tuck than anyone besides my wife!”
Dan Foran T’22, Product Manager, Zitara


“The MBA Fellows program presented countless opportunities for us to dive deep into the world of digital and its impact to business, society, and people.”
Robin Hwang T’18, Sales Manager, Mid-Market Sales, Google


“Being a CDS MBA Fellow was definitely a highlight of my Tuck experience. I can’t wait to be a proud CDS alum.”
Sravya Yeleswarapu T’18, Sr. Product Manager, Amazon Global
