Learning Takes Action: Multidisciplinary Action Projects (MAP)

Work with a company sponsor and a team of peers to find a creative solution to a critical organizational challenge. Think of MAP as a mini-consulting project, guided by a faculty advisor. Like any consultant, your team’s task will be to direct the pace and activities of the project at hand, and deliver a final analysis and recommendation.

Learn in the Real World

Maybe you’ll help a new startup survive by modeling its supply chain. Or you could plan a company’s entry into a new country. Perhaps you’ll improve a nonprofit’s fundraising strategy.

The possibilities are endless, but one thing’s for sure:
No matter what you do, you’ll make an impact.

Solve a Real-World Challenge

MAP empowers students to apply what they’ve learned in the classroom in a real company setting. Online MBA students work virtually with companies such as Uber Technologies, Sony Entertainment and Coinbase to address real challenges.

“Through meetings with companies, hospitals, and local residents, we were able to get a deep understanding of the healthcare system in Vietnam and how privatized healthcare is beginning to play a prominent role, leading to opportunities for international healthcare groups. We also had the opportunity to bond as classmates outside of an academic context. For me, I couldn't have thought of a better way to end my MBA experience. The sights of Ha Long Bay didn't hurt either.”
