This access results in opportunities to consult with real-world companies on real-world challenges, building relationships that can result in lasting connections with successful organizations that our students continue to benefit from after graduation. Some partner organizations include Puma, McKinsey, Cubist, Ocean Spray, and Johnson & Johnson, among many others.
