Practicum Courses

This course pairs groups of students with a company for a semester-long project. Student teams works with their participating company by framing a business issue as an analytics problem, analyzing data provided by the company, and generating applicable business insights and/or developing capabilities.

Information Technology Practicum

This course pairs teams of Georgia Tech MBA students with participating organizations for a 3-month project. Each student team will conduct an in-depth analysis and develop a detailed answer to a “strategic question" provided by a participating organization. The question should lie at the intersection of business and technology. The students benefit from the opportunity to apply the analytical and technology skills they acquire in the program to a real-world situation. The participating organizations benefit from in-depth analyses by highly motivated MBA students of the issues related to a strategic question. Participating organizations have included AT&T, The Coca-Cola Company, IBM, InterContinental Hotel Group, SecureWorks, and Southern Company.

This semester-long class project is designed to give students on-the-ground international consulting experience, and a greater ability to define, analyze, and solve international business problems. Students work as part of a consulting team for a client based in the U.S. or where the residency will take place. The teams explore market opportunities abroad or research entering the U.S. market for the client. Previous clients have included companies such as Genius Consulting, HP, IBM, Monarch Beverages, and UPS.  Previous teams have traveled to Argentina, Brazil, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, Denmark, Ireland, Japan, Turkey, and Singapore.

Learn the tools and techniques of Lean Six Sigma employed by leading companies to improve processes and performance. You'll apply its methodology and statistical analysis to a company project. Participating companies have included AT&T, AutoTrader, State Farm, and The Coca-Cola Company. Certification at the Green Belt level, valued in the industry at more than $5,000, is offered as part of this elective course.

Gain experience in solving marketing problems faced by organizations. Understand marketing and business problems faced by organizations and develop the relevant skills for critically analyzing these problems and providing a tractable solution.

This course consists of both lectures and a hands-on project. Lectures include the Lean Startup methodology, as well as guest lecturers representing young entrepreneurs, experienced entrepreneurs, angel investors, venture capitalists, technology venture lawyers, and more. Moving in parallel with the lectures, students develop the core of a business model for a real startup idea. This is done by working with a startup at ATDC, working with GTRI or GTRC on commercialization opportunities for existing intellectual property, or students may develop their own startup idea from scratch.

Georgia Tech's Pro Bono Consulting class helps non-profit organizations based in Atlanta resolve key strategic challenges. Since its inception, participants have worked with such clients as the American Cancer Society, Art of Living, MedShare International, and The Sullivan Center. As a participant, you'll have an opportunity to apply classroom theory and gain consulting experience.

The course will consist of case studies, visiting lecturers from financial institutions, and student group projects of an advanced nature — all centered around quantitative and computational finance. The group projects deal with applicable problems in areas such as asset management, credit risk, and pricing of derivatives. The course involves significant data analysis using big data sets. The groups will be required to formulate and analyze the project problem, and implement and present their solutions to the problems.

Real Estate Practicum

Designed to give MBAs experience working on real-life real estate solutions for Fortune 50 companies, students are actively involved in a Corporate Real Estate Innovation Council. They function as the research arm of the Council and explore the workplace of the future: how the built environment impacts productivity, asset monetization, and the impact emerging technologies will have on the built environment. Participation in this practicum has led to internship opportunities with service providers and corporate real estate departments of major global companies.

The Strategy and Innovation Consulting Practicum integrates actual strategy and innovation issues currently confronting major corporations with an experiential course combining: (1) the application of theory to practice, (2) coursework emulating the work performed by early-career strategy consultants, (3) frameworks for identification and resolution of strategy and innovation problems, (4) the process and practice of strategy analysis and strategy design, (5) development of practical strategy implementation plans, (6) skills development (in planning, communicating, conducting research, and decision making), and (7) interactions with strategy and innovation consultants and industry executives.

Innovate around supply chain problems in a real world setting. Apply what you learned in supply chain courses to a real project. Your student group will be paired with a company for a semester-long project. Work with the host company to analyze a current supply chain issue and provide innovative solutions.

Students gain knowledge in three important areas: management consulting, topical sustainability issues, and project management. This course takes students through a crash course in management consulting skills while teams are formed and assigned to sustainability-relevant, business-focused projects for participating companies. Teams scope, plan, execute, and deliver a 12-week consulting project by actively managing the engagement via ongoing interactions with their client liaison.
