Collaboration Overview

We are searching for companies interested in hosting a group of 3-5 Notre Dame MBAs for a special research-based student consulting project taking place over a 4-day period in Spring 2021 (March 22-25). Projects offer students new perspectives, allow practice and reinforcement of course learnings, as well as round out student development while at Mendoza. In turn, host companies and organizations receive timely and impactful analysis and recommendations on their business challenges or opportunities to further move the needle towards important strategic outcomes.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to COVID travel restrictions, all projects must be conducted virtually this Spring 2021.
