Contribute more to your company’s success

As part of the program, you will design a project of your choice and work with a Faculty Advisor to bring it to life. Choosing a project within your organization presents an opportunity to demonstrate your initiative and value to your boss, while exploring a project in a field in which you’ve always been interested can help confirm whether or not it’s the right direction for you. Past students have even used this part of the program to develop a new venture idea and access help and resources to develop a business plan or feasibility study.
