Innovating for Sustainable Value
The Weatherhead full-time MBA program provides students the opportunity to practice what we preach in a yearlong MBA practicum. Through partnerships with area businesses facing a challenge, students experiment with design practices, like reframing questions and challenging standard protocols, to imagine powerful new solutions.
In this practicum, students realize the value of design thinking in management, often discovering as well just how business can be an agent of world benefit. Acting as consultants to area organizations like KeyBank, Marriott and Cleveland Clinic as well as venerable nonprofits like the Cleveland Orchestra, students tackle business problems in all their real-world complexity.
