Frequently Asked Questions

General

There are four projects a semester. A project consists of a project leader, two to three senior advisors (past project leaders), and four to five consultants. The team works together throughout the semester to solve pressing problems faced by our clients. At the end of the semester, we present our work to the client during a live (online) deliverable.
