I teach Operations Management and I am looking for providing my students with real world business experiences that would transform the knowledge gained in the classroom to skills that will make them ready for their future careers. My student groups can assist your company in various activities such as PERT/CPM and GANTT chart project scheduling tools, forecasting techniques, process analysis, break-even analysis, etc.
Engagement Format: Live Case
Class Collaboration or Case Competition - This learning format allows educators to deliver experiential learning to students at scale. Students are often split into groups to work on a live case (or a series of cases) from a real host company that directly relates to key learning objectives.
