The Program is designed to give students a real-world experience by connecting to the small business community in San Diego. Students are able to apply their learned business knowledge in strategy and problem solving to address issues facing the small business they are assigned. After thorough business and research techniques have been utilized, each team provides recommendations to their clients in a comprehensive deliverable including an action plan.
