DURHAM, N.H.—The Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics at the University of New Hampshire invites start-ups, established businesses, nonprofits and government institutions to engage with undergraduate students and new alumni on corporate consulting projects. Project proposals or problem statements should be submitted by 5 p.m. Monday, June 1, 2020, at https://paulcollege.unh.edu/paul-projects.

Proposals will be reviewed, and projects selected by the week of June 8. Students will work on projects from June 15 until August 10.

Many students and recent graduates are unable to experience summer internships or begin jobs due to COVID-19. These students are seeking opportunities to continue building expertise by working with outside organizations on real-world projects. Experiential learning opportunities help prepare students to excel in their careers, engage in their communities and meet the challenges of the global business world.

“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 academic programs at Paul College.

Those interested in learning more about working with students on a project or other ways to engage with business students may contact Kimberly Clark, director of career and professional success, at Kimberly.Clark@unh.edu.
