Course Title

MBA Live Business Case

Collaboration Overview

Innovative Student Consultants from Montclair State University's Feliciano School of Business are looking to help you take your business to the next level.

We are looking for a host company to work on a Live Business Case from September 21st through October 26th. This 5-week engagement should ideally focus on Growth Strategy, Marketing, Product/Software Design & Development, and Data Management (samples for these subject areas can each be found here).
The 20 students enrolled in the class will each spend roughly 5 hours per week working on the projects in small teams of 5 where they’ll be competing with each other to come up with the best insights for you. They will be receiving mentorship from a seasoned faculty, Yanli Zhang, who has deep expertise in areas related to your project.
The time commitment is manageable (1-2 hours per week of mentoring) and the engagement is free for participating companies.
