MBA Consulting Project

 
The MBA Field Study Experience provides MBA students the opportunity to build a bridge from the world of academia to the world of business. The program takes students out of the classroom and allows then to apply concepts from their courses and gain valuable consulting and field experience. Students take on comprehensive business projects, which can include developing business and strategic plans, preparing feasibility studies,and analyzing and designing financial accounting and inventory control systems.
 
Students work in teams over the course of one semester,  16 weeks, to provide consulting to organizations that have been in business for a minimum of two years. Each team consists of students, faculty advisors and one or more senior representatives from the client organization. The client can choose to incorporate an already existing strategic problem, issue or opportunity, or to work with the team to compose a comprehensive project.
