  •  The BRIDGES Experiential Learning Program – Summer 2014

    Wednesday, Mar. 19, 2014 4:24 PM

    Offered by Graduate Business Career Management

    In its 5th year, the BRIDGES Experiential Program connects organizations with MBA student teams to work on projects that address a specific business challenge. The program is an ideal solution for students who wish to bridge any experience gaps but are otherwise committed to full-time employment.  We ask each project to designate a lead mentor for our student team.   We have found that alumni are a great resource as mentors for our students in this program and hope you will consider sponsoring a program. 

    If you are interested please fill out the application form on our web site by May 7th. After we review the projects we will match student teams to organizations and will notify you by May 21st if your project has been selected for this summer.

    Please promote this to anyone in your network who might be interested in sponsoring an MBA team for an experiential learning project this summer.
