    Business Challenges for the real world

    Business Challenges are project-based, faculty-led courses that occur during or at the end of each core module. These challenges combine skills, topics, and knowledge from previous courses to apply towards solving or developing real-world business strategies.

    At least one of these challenges involves working alongside a real-world corporate client, which gives students the opportunity to gain practical experience working with successful companies, grow their network, and add weight to their resume.


    Previous Business Challenge examples include:


    Mercedes Benz

    Developing solutions to increase the electric vehicle share in key global markets.


    Verizon Wireless

    Establishing new market segments and key enablers of technological disruption.



    Developing an integrated marketing campaign across Above the Line and Below the Line touchpoints.


    Groupo Bimbo

    Integrating technological strategies, including ecommerce and autonomous vehicles, into food industry strategy while enhancing existing business models and creating new customer access innovations.


    Entrepreneurial Challenge

    Creating a new business concept at the edge of growth trends, while developing and validating ideas through deep insights, and building a go-to-market plan that is executable and financeable.


    STEM Challenge

    Strong leadership comes with practice

    It’s not until you actually lead a team of people that you understand the type of leader you are. We’ve taken advanced self-awareness practices from leadership development courses and built them into all our degree programs. As you take on leadership roles in a series of real-world challenges, you’ll examine your personal attributes against key leadership competencies.

    Armed with this insight and the systematic feedback of your peers, you’ll work to improve the key skills you’ve identified and develop an authentic style of leadership that’s uniquely you. We provide the team, the task, and the tools—the rest is up to you.
