UW Madison Business Student Projects for Fall 2017

  • Share:
September 21, 2017

The Small Business Development Center and the Weinert Center for Entrepreneurship at the Wisconsin School of Business have a limited opportunity for you to obtain free student assistance through course project teams.
 
HOW THE PROJECTS WORK
Projects are specifically structured to allow the students to apply concepts learned in their classes and to assist local businesses under experienced faculty guidance. Students work in groups of 3-4 on each project. The program has been in existence for over 20 years and has assisted hundreds of businesses.
The project will be performed under strict confidentiality and students will sign a confidentiality agreement. Your company MUST be willing to share their most recent two or three years of balance sheets, income statements and cash flows for analysis.

No fees are charged for the students' work. You are responsible for reimbursing students for agreed upon travel, photocopying and all out of pocket expenses. The students will not be responsible for any tasks that would normally accrue to temporary or permanent employees of the business. Projects take the full semester to complete.

This year's project will be a five year strategic plan for an existing business or non-profit venture.  The project will conduct a strategic analysis of current operations and facilitate with management to develop a long-term vision, mission and strategy going forward
