Description

Research Brief: Corporate Partner Projects, Action Learning and Corporate Social Responsibility in the Online MBA

Abstract

Civic Engagement, Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) are learning objectives for many MBA programs but implementing real world projects in an online environment takes careful consideration. This paper describes the process of creating and delivering a consulting project for a completely online MBA class from initial data gathering, to project outline and final results. We share what worked in this process and its success from the faculty, industry partner and student perspectives. The bottom line, don’t miss out on this type of opportunity even though it can involve a lot more work, the results are rewarding.
