Students did an excellent job researching and identifying business opportunities to help us navigate the challenges of COVID-19. They gave us an external, in-depth view of our business with solid research on what our competition is doing and recommendations on the best marketing strategies for our business. The program is a simple way to give back and help the next generation of business leaders.”
