Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2020-2021.

This course is designed for AMBA and two-year residential students who want to apply the knowledge they are gaining to real client-driven, business problems. Over the spring and summer largely fortune 500 companies are solicited for projects that students can work on during the fall semester. The course uses frequent video conferencing to meet with the clients given the current difficulty with travel and the virus. It the situation changes we will try for some in-person meetings. The projects are done by teams of students, typically four to five, supported by both the faculty and an adviser. You should expect to spend on average 6-10 hours per week on the course including the class time. Class meetings are once per week with the entire class and meeting time for each team. There are also weekly meetings with the faculty responsible for each project for 30 to 60 minutes depending on the project need. Lecture material covers the approach to structuring complex problems, conducting analytical work and developing conclusions and recommendations. Students teams are expected to communicate regularly with their clients and to have at a minimum interim and final presentations. The projects will build on concepts and knowledge built in the core courses and immersions as well as other fall electives. The projects may be in the broad areas of strategy, operations, finance, technology, and marketing.
