MBA Consulting Project

The MBA Consulting Project 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 requires them 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 to provide consulting to local organizations. Each team consists of students, a faculty advisor, and one or more senior representatives from the client organization. Student teams select their project from a list of approved projects available from the MBA Office.
