Student teams in the Operations and Supply Chain Management class partner with organizations to create an operations plan that establishes a set of major steps or tasks necessary to meet an existing, new or proposed operations process.
The team will deliver their quantitative analyses and implementation plan recommendations to their partner through both a verbal presentation and a written report.
The team will present their findings to their partner in a verbal presentation, along with an executive report and various spreadsheets that can be updated as the values for certain variables change. Worksheets generally include Cash Flow Projections, Profit and Loss Statements, and Balance Sheet Projections.
In order to participate in the Sustainable Finance EL Project, the company or organization must be considering the business and financial viability of a strategic initiative. Strategic questions include, for example: “Should my organization launch in a new market/demographic?”, “Should our organization offer this new product/service? Will the market receive it? Will it make sense financially?”
Student teams in the Engagement: Connecting Brands and Consumers
To sponsor an Engagement: Connecting Brands and Consumers EL, the organization must be in business already. Start-up ideas that are not implemented yet do not work well with this type of Marketing Plan. The organization should also have some idea of what product/service/general demographic they are targeting.
