UNH invites businesses to engage with Paul College students
The Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics at the University of New Hampshire invites businesses and non-profits to engage with undergraduates and MBAs by submitting projects to be completed by student teams.
Paul College students are getting out of the traditional classroom and building expertise by working with outside organizations on “real world” projects. These “experiential learning” opportunities help prepare students to excel in their careers, engage in their communities, and meet the challenges of the global business world.
Start-ups, established business, non-profit organizations, and government institutions are encouraged to submit project proposals (or problem statements) via the following website.
The deadline for proposal submission is 5 p.m. on Monday, June 1, 2020. Proposals will be reviewed and projects selected by the first week of January.
Following are a few examples of the project programs at Paul College:
Honors Consulting Project: Undergraduates in the Paul Honors Program work in partnership with the NH Small Businesses Development Center (NHSBDC) 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 (ISBA) Capstone Course: Seniors in the ISBA program work in small teams to solve information systems issues, develop quantitative models, and analyze complex data sets.
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.
MBA SCM Project: MBA students taking the eight-week Supply Chain Management elective tackle “mini-projects” related to sourcing, distribution, and/or logistics.
According to Associate Dean, Neil Niman, "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."
