DURHAM, N.H. – The Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics at the University of New Hampshire invites businesses to submit corporate consulting projects to be completed by graduating MBA students.
As the capstone course for the MBA program, consulting projects should be challenging, with workloads set at a professional level. Student teams will work 40 hours a week on the projects for five weeks during May and June 2013. Since 2003, 287 students have completed 163 projects with more than 86 companies.
In the past, students have developed an IT disaster recovery plan for a national business; analyzed and monitored the implementation of a new sales tool to determine its effectiveness in terms of customer profitability and retention; assessed current fuel forecasting and distribution inefficiencies as well as proposed and managed remedial actions; and researched and analyzed the effectiveness of a company’s marketing and sales strategies, providing recommendations to increase sales and revenue.
Project proposals are due Friday, Feb. 22, 2013, and can be submitted online. There is no fee to participate in the program, but a donation of $500 is requested to help offset expenses, such as student travel.
Potential projects will be reviewed, and if a project fits the program criteria, the firm proposing the project will be sent students’ resumes for review. Students will review projects and bid to work on them. Paul College faculty advisors will assign students to projects based on client rankings, student interest, and faculty assessment of student competencies.
Please submit proposal online at: http://wsbe.unh.edu/corporate-consulting-project-ccp-proposal-spring-2013. For more information, contact Maureen Marshall at 603-862-2567 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
