Opportunities to work with Duke MBA students
CASE i3 Consulting Program (CASE i3CP). Your impact investing organization can engage a consulting team of 5-7 students to work on a question or challenge you are currently facing. Client organization benefit from the passion, fresh perspective, and technical expertise our students bring to their consulting projects, while students benefit from applying their academic learning to an of-the-moment issue in the impact investing space.
Fuqua Client Consulting Practicum (FCCP). FCCP is an experiential learning course where students apply content learned in their graduate coursework to real challenges facing businesses and community-based organizations. Clients participating in this program work collaboratively with a small team of Fuqua students and benefit from the fresh perspectives and actionable recommendations they provide.
Fuqua on Board (FOB). This nonprofit board program matches Fuqua MBA students with Durham-area nonprofits to serve as non-voting board members. Over the course of a year-long apprenticeship, pairs of students work closely with a board mentor, participate regularly in board meetings, complete a Board-related project, and attend relevant committee meetings.
Mentored Study. Students are able to work for course credit one day per week over a full semester with a mentor organization. Student and mentor agree on the scope of work, and the student may work on-site or virtually.
