Projects are carried out virtually over a flexible six-week period as an academic exercise in their field of study, and students and sponsors work closely in an authentic professional environment during which students produce deliverables for their sponsors that may help inform critical business decisions while helping learners gain confidence and apply classroom learning to solve real world problems.
