MBA Consulting Projects
MBA consulting projects have been a valuable resource for Long Island Business for
over 20 years. A team of MBA graduate students, under faculty supervision, focus on
a problem that has been identified in the fabric of your business.
The students meet with you and work over the course of a semester to analyze and create working solutions. It is real-world experience for them — they must keep in constant communication with you, the client — and the results of their project work would be of tangible benefit.
Please fill out this google form (https://forms.gle/xmUUnhFtLpZwsfKL9) if you are interested to participate for the incoming Spring 2023 Semester. Please contact our faculty, Richard Chan (Richard.Chan@stonybrook.edu) and Ed Fabian (firstname.lastname@example.org), if you have additional questions.
