The IU Kelley School of Business Indianapolis is looking for central Indiana companies to partner with undergraduate student teams for its renowned Integrative Core (I-Core) Program.
I-Core is a distinguishing component of Kelley’s bachelor’s degree program. Junior-level students take a set of four integrated classes—marketing, finance, supply chain management and team dynamics and leadership—during a single semester. Kelley students say I-Core is one of the most meaningful experiences of their Kelley careers—a rite of passage to understanding the business world and the value of teamwork.
A team of students will meet with company representatives to establish a project that works to benefit the company. Students conduct research, analyze findings and provide a recommendation at the end of the semester.
Students may consider new goods or services, providing a feasibility study of the new product and market. They will determine if return on investment justifies risk and capital investment.
Company representatives are asked to participate in an on-campus meeting to talk about the company’s current business and provide background information to help student analysis.
