DURHAM, N.H.—The Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics at the University of New Hampshire invites businesses and nonprofits to propose projects and work with student teams. These “real world” experiential learning opportunities help prepare students to excel in their careers, engage in their communities and meet the challenges of the global business world.

By engaging with student teams on capstone projects companies strengthen connections with New Hampshire’s flagship university, tap into student talent and contribute to developing future business leaders. Start-ups, established businesses, non-profit organizations, and government institutions wishing to engage a student team during the spring 2023 semester are encouraged to submit project proposals (or problem statements) by Dec. 31 via the ONLINE PROPOSAL FORM.

A team of Paul College faculty advisers will review all submissions and forward approved proposals to the program that best aligns with the needs of the submitting organization. A faculty adviser will contact selected firms to discuss team assignments and project timing.

Following are a few examples of past programs:

  • Marketing Workshop Capstone Course: Teams of seniors in the marketing option conduct market research and develop strategic marketing plans 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.
  • MBA Corporate Consulting Project: Graduate students work with New Hampshire small businesses on strategic business projects that apply and integrate concepts learned in class.
