|Faculty and Advisors Meeting|
The Center is under the direction of Dr. Stephen M. Brown, noted educator, scholar and business consultant and an Advisory Board composed of area business and civic leaders who are currently involved in some way with Not-For-Profits. A group of advisors, each with broad business experience, counsels the MBA student teams during their project.
A team of 3 to 4 students possessing the required skill sets work under the direction of an advisor with the Not-For-Profit organization. This task will usually require 3-4 weeks of research and may entail personnel interviews, Internet searches and a review of the best practices of similar organizations.During the remaining course time, the students complete their research and prepare their final report for presentation to the class and to the Not-For-Profit organization. The findings and recommendations contained in the study can then be used by the clients as they see fit.
The types of projects undertaken have included:
- Marketing Brochures
- Financial Modeling
- Directed SWOT (Strengths-Weaknesses-Opportunities-Threats)
- Case Statements
- Web Design/Modification
- Facilities Manuals
