SMART™ MBA Consulting

Companies are looking for experienced talent that can provide fresh thinking and insight to address complex business issues. They are searching not just for educated talent, but people with hands-on experience. To help students meet employer expectations, we have developed the Strategic Management of Applied Research and Technology (SMART™) capstone. This is a unique opportunity for students to act as management consultants to gain the skills they need to get hired or advance their careers.

We connect students with executives to address complex issues facing their organizations. We partner with global powerhouses, regional brands, non-profits and startups. As a result, students refine communication skills and develop creative thinking abilities at a pace and intensity that exceeds other programs.
