How Do Projects Work?

You will have the opportunity to solve an issue of strategic importance for a client in the field or discipline of your choice. The semester kicks off with a common Goizueta IMPACT boot camp where you go deeper into project and client relationship management. You will work with internal and external leadership coaches to make sure your team launches successfully. Throughout the semester, expert faculty and coaching resources support the teams in developing their insights and recommendations. At the end of the semester, project teams present their recommendations to panels of clients, other business leaders, faculty, and staff. In 2017, Goizueta IMPACT Showcase brought over 300 judges to campus, providing a tremendous opportunity to connect with the broader business community and showcase our student talent.

2018 IMPACT projects addressed issues in social impact, healthcare, real estate, strategic valuation, marketing strategy, operations, and entertainment, culture and media, among others.
