Professor Heather Hallett, is searching for partners to work with teams of upper year students on a capstone academic course project.

Course Overview
OpenClose

In the MOS Field Project course, student teams will interact with the management of a client organization on issues of strategic importance. The course will require students to complete one consulting engagement where they will be responsible for conducting research, analyzing information and providing recommendations to their client.

Students in the final year of any MOS program at Brescia are eligible to register in the course. These students have a general management background as well as more specialized knowledge in one of Accounting, Consumer Behavior, Food Management and Marketing and Nonprofit Management.

Students will be guided and supervised by an experienced faculty member throughout the process. In addition to providing students with an opportunity to apply their management knowledge and skills, organizations will benefit from the objective analysis and creative solutions the students will deliver in a final presentation.

Client Commitment

Students participating in the consulting engagement will have limited to no professional experience.  As such, the consulting project will be a unique learning experience for the students.

Clients are expected to be available:

  • To present an overview of their organization and the project issues during class time in January or February;
  • For weekly (30 minutes maximum) conference or phone calls as needed; and
  • For final student presentations in early April.

Clients also invited to contribute to the evaluation of student.
