SWIM to Success

For 78 years, Scripps has been educating women so that they can achieve their highest personal and professional aspirations. Now, for the first time in its history, the College is launching an innovative executive education program for women, beginning in summer 2005. Scripps Women in Management (SWIM)—in partnership with leading scholars/teachers from the nation’s top business schools—is a two-week residential program on campus available to women in the mid- to upper levels of executive management.

SWIM will be led by prominent scholars in the field of business education, including professors from Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business, UC Irvine’s Graduate School of Management, and Claremont’s Drucker & Ito School of Business.

In addition, seasoned executives will provide practical business insights. Major business leaders will facilitate interactive discussions with participants. Other executives from the corporations and firms represented by attendees will also be invited to explore important challenges facing women in corporate America.

Women executives who complete SWIM can expect to boost their leadership skills, gain a broader perspective of the 21st century business environment, and know how to effectively analyze issues for short- and longterm planning.
