In BA 3500, students take what they have learned in the classroom and put it into practice through a professional team-based project with a real business client. Students meet weekly with their project teams and are coached by the instructor and a graduate student project manager. Throughout the semester, students conduct market research and develop a report and presentation for the client that provides business findings and recommendations. Projects serve corporations, small businesses, government and educational organizations, and nonprofits throughout Missouri in partnership with MU Extension and the MU Office of Service-Learning.
