 Connecting Businesses to Students

Gardiner Centre Solutions is a collaborative initiative of the Gardiner Centre, faculty members, and MBA students, in the Faculty of Business Administration, Memorial University. Emulating the operations of a real consulting practice, MBA students gain practical experience by carrying out consulting projects for local small and medium-sized businesses on real-life challenges, while at the same time earning academic credit in an MBA consulting course. Since the first program in 2007, Gardiner Solutions has consistently delivered value for businesses by providing solutions to their specific and unique challenges.

DETAILS:

• The course operates as a semester-long project, with students playing the role of members of consulting teams who work on projects for local companies.
• The student consulting teams avail of the expertise of senior staff within the Gardiner Centre and draw upon the advice and input of a number of senior faculty members. Gardiner Centre also provides the student consultants with administrative support.
• Students applying to the course usually will have already completed their first year MBA courses or will have significant work experience.
• At the conclusion of each project, consulting teams formally present their solution and provide a written report to the client.
• Projects are carefully selected to challenge students to think of practical business solutions to actual managerial challenges.
• To participate in the program clients pay a fee of $5000 to help defray with administrative cost and expenses.
