"My project mirrored the professional experiences I will encounter upon graduating from Tippie. Through my work consulting for a Fortune 50 company on new business models, I realized the demands of maintaining a strong work ethic and the importance of diverse perspectives. This course increased my confidence that I will be able to make an impact with my MBA."

Project Structure

Projects are structured over a 17 week period and can be broken up into four phases. Each phase contains milestones consisting of client sign off in order for the team to progress to the next stage. In addition, three in person meetings occur that includes a project kick-off lunch, formal midpoint and final presentations. Click on each phase below to find out what is expected.

Communication and interaction with the client and BSC directors make the projects a success. Weekly meetings with the BSC directors and clients are held to ensure the projects are progressing towards a successful final recommendation. In addition, the MBA consulting teams present written status reports to the client every two weeks to show the project progression.
