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 on “real world” projects. Project proposals or problem statements should be submitted by Thursday, Dec. 31, 2020.

A team of faculty advisers will review all submissions and forward approved proposals to the program that best aligns with the needs of the business. A faculty adviser will then contact the selected firms to discuss the assignment of a student team. Following are a few examples of the project programs:

Honors Consulting Project: Undergraduates in the Paul honors program work in partnership with the NH Small Business Development Center in cross-disciplinary teams to conduct research and solve unique business problems for clients.

Marketing Workshop Capstone Course: Teams of seniors in the marketing option 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.

These experiential learning opportunities help to better prepare students to excel in their careers, engage in their communities and meet the challenges of the global business world.

To learn more about these programs or other ways to engage with Paul College students contact Kimberly Clark, director of Paul Career Services.
