DURHAM, N.H. – The Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics at the University of New Hampshire invites businesses to engage with undergraduate and MBA students by submitting projects to be completed by student teams. 

“Engaging with outside organizations on projects gives our students a unique opportunity to apply their knowledge to solve real-world business problems while also strengthening Paul College's connections and contributions to the business community,” said Neil Niman, associate dean of Paul College.

Start-ups, established business, nonprofit organizations, and government institutions wishing to engage a student team during the Spring 2018 term are encouraged to submit project proposals (or problem statements) by 5 p.m., Friday, December 15, 2017, at https://paulcollege.unh.edu/career-services/employer-resources/paul-projects

Following are a few examples of the project programs at Paul College:

  • Honors Consulting Project: Undergraduates work in partnership with the NH Small Businesses Development Center to conduct research and solve business problems for clients.
  • Marketing Workshop Capstone Course: Teams of seniors conduct market research, and develop and implement strategic marketing plans and programs for a client-selected marketing problem.
  • Information Systems and Business Analytics Capstone Course: Seniors work in small teams to solve information systems issues, develop quantitative models, and/or analyze complex data sets.
  • Econ Undergrad Project: Undergraduates support clients with focused business research, ROI analyses, risk assessments, etc.
  • MBA CCP Course: Full-time MBA students work with clients on more advanced, strategic initiatives over an eight-week period as part of their Capstone Consulting Project course.
