Why do it

Project Examples

A group of student-consultants will develop a thorough Project Management Plan for a project of your choosing. Using Project Management Theory, students will put together a thorough breakdown of a future project for your organization, including project requirements, schedule and responsibilities.

Examples of projects have included, but are not limited to:

  • Development of a new website
  • Implementation of a new software or system
  • Business process change
  • Office relocation
  • Rebranding project or implementation of new logo
  • New product/service launch 
  • Evaluation of new technology or suppliers


The student group will submit a written project plan, as well as formally present their project to the industry partner (in person or virtually).
