“To All – Awesome Job!” Student Consulting Projects With Industry Partners: Overcoming Challenges and Ensuring The Value-Add For All Stakeholders
Management faculty frequently integrate consulting assignments in their courses as a means of offering real-world experience to students. These opportunities coincide with many challenges for faculty, not the least of which is ensuring an overall value-add for the industry partners, students, major departments, universities, and the community. In this roundtable session, we will open the floor to session attendees to discuss student consulting projects, including virtual-only projects that offer broader engagement with industry partners, possibly world-wide. We will use two recent virtual projects as examples, discuss how all parties worked together amid the pandemic, and how “awesome” results were achieved.
