There are numerous opportunities for your corporations and employees to engage with our students and assist them with their development and financial needs.
Building on the school's commitment to creating dynamic, challenging experiences that have real-world application, the Carlson School offers experiential learning opportunities that take students out of the classroom in order to directly partner with the business community.
The Carlson Enterprises offer hands-on experiential learning. Students work directly with corporations as clients to manage real projects in branding and marketing, management consulting, new business ventures, and funds investment with oversight by a professional director and faculty.
The Carlson School provides education in specialty areas such as the medical industry, entrepreneurship, cross-sector leadership, global business competencies, social media analytics and more. Corporations, big and small, can utilize these centers and institutes to solve business challenges and engage with and recruit students.
