UNH’s Paul College seeks ‘real world’ projects for students

Undergrads can team with businesses, organizations on consulting initiatives

Paul Single Blue Web HrThe Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics at the University of New Hampshire is inviting startups, established businesses, nonprofits and government institutions to engage with undergraduate students on “real world” corporate consulting projects.

A team of faculty advisers will review all submissions and forward approved proposals to the program that best aligns with the needs of the business, officials said. A faculty adviser will contact the selected firms to discuss the assignment of a student team.

Experiential learning opportunities help to better prepare students to excel in their careers, engage in their communities and meet the challenges of the global business world, said Kimberly Clark director of Paul Career Services.

Recent consulting projects involved:

  • Undergraduates in the Paul honors program who worked in partnership with the New Hampshire Small Business Development Center in cross-disciplinary teams to conduct research and solve unique business problems for clients.
  • Teams of seniors who conducted market research and develop and implement strategic marketing plans and programs for a client-selected marketing problem.
  • Seniors who worked in small teams to solve information systems issues, develop quantitative models and/or analyze complex data sets.

Project proposals or problem statements should be submitted by Thursday, Dec. 31.
