Courses and challenges subject to change

    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.
