The basic idea of this project, is that you (your company) can define a business challenge you believe would be of benefit for you, and would benefit from help solving with experienced global MBA student(s).
First, we ask you to define a clear goal, perhaps in a question format, ie "How can we create business viable strategies for ______ in market segment ______ ?". Once the goal is determined, we will do a scope proposal that will then define us starting on an in-depth project with market research, trend analysis, competitive analysis, opportunity cost, etc (based on your goal's needs) - all geared towards helping inform you to have an advantage (make you more competitive or explore viability of new market segments for example) -- to achieving your goal. The scope of the project is approximately 6 months, can range from an individual to up to 5-6 person team. This acts as a thesis for our MBA degree, so it's very important to us that we do the best job possible for you.

Thank you for your interest!
