This is a project-based course that aims to provide students with the strategic tools to address a specific problem or opportunity faced by a local organization - primarily a small business, a startup, or a non-profit in an underserved local community, or owned by a minority owner. Students will work in small teams to develop implementable recommendations to the client organization and the instructor and address the issues or leverage the opportunity the organization is facing. Final deliverables will include a presentation and a written report.

As a capstone experience a course-long project involving a real organization in the East-Bay community reinforces program-long learning by giving the students an opportunity to practice the theories covered in the classes. Our community partners will be chosen among organizations that would otherwise not have access to this level of consulting, those operating in underprivileged communities as well as minority-owned businesses. This setup fully embodies our Lasallian mission of “entering to learn, leaving to serve”.
