The Bush School of Government & Public Service at Texas A&M University is looking for graduate students during the 2016 – 2017 academic year.
“The Bush School Consulting Capstone (BSCC) assists client organizations in addressing existing and emerging challenges. Projects will be based on your needs and could entail a range of topics such as: feasibility studies, needs assessment, program evaluation, organizational assessment, human resource planning, and strategic planning. See this page for example prior projects.
The goal of the capstone is to enhance students’ management and policy education by developing collaborative consulting engagements with organizations to address substantive management and policy issues. Size of student teams will be dependent on the complexity of client projects. We anticipate most teams will range from 5-8 members. Faculty supervisors are Will Brown, Deborah Kerr, and Wynn Rosser. The consulting capstone utilizes a structured framework to approach problem definition and project oversight.
The 2016-2017 applications are available at the following link: http://goo.gl/forms/FeX6uqU7fDlKZqv73. Prospective client organizations are asked to complete an application by July 15, 2016. Applications will be reviewed by faculty sponsors and then screened by students. Selection of client hosts should be completed by mid-September. If your project is selected, student teams will meet with client hosts to develop a problem definition (work scope) memo by the end of September. The student team will then work with organizations to complete the agreed upon scope of work by May 2017.
