The GSCFMI Experience
Thoughts on the relationships formed at GSCFM:

The GSCFM International program, like GSCFM, is held on the campus of Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire. Hanover is a picturesque community nestled in a valley on the banks of the Connecticut River. It is a little more than two hours by car from Boston, five from New York and three from Montreal.
Dartmouth College dormitories house participants, staff and instructors during the program. Meals are provided for participants, who are encouraged to attend every meal to facilitate professional networking and build fellowship among the faculty and other participants.
Participants may be required to complete advance-reading assignments so they are prepared to be actively involved in class discussions. Any assignments or reading lists will be shipped to participants in advance of the program. Attendance at all scheduled class sessions is mandatory. So each student maximizes on their attendance, participation in the discussion of assignments, class activities and projects is required.
On the final night of GSCFMI, participants receive a certificate of completion at a celebratory dinner. This final evening crowns four days of intense course work and solidifies newly cultivated relationships.
