Consulting projects close the skill gap by connecting
students with companies globally.


For projects to make a real impact and maximize learning of students and companies, it is necessary to create
well-thought-out connections.

We successfully involve small and medium-sized companies in the cooperation, which have the potential for global or regional growth and have an eminent interest in working with international students.

 

We deal exclusively with company owners or C-level managers who are willing to look at things from different perspectives, seek creative ideas and pay great attention to student recommendations.

At the same time, through projects, students can influence tactical or strategic processes and contribute to companies making the right decisions. The fact that they do the work that matters is a crucial motivator for students to deliver the best possible results.

HAD TO SAY ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCE

“At Budweiser Budvar, we focus on brand and business development of our top priority markets, a large U.S. market being one of them. U.S. market could be seen not only as one of the biggest markets for premium imported beers worldwide but also as a trend-setter, where unconventional, but at the same time, also

a sophisticated approach is crucial.

Therefore, we have gladly decided to participate in this Student Consulting Project with GIOBA and UNCW. As expected, it brought us a unique, unconventional, but sophisticated opportunity to understand the US beer market in its facets much deeper. We could better understand our position, opportunities, and challenges and to shape alternative marketing and business strategies and models. All that seen by the eyes of young  students, bringing their creative energy and attitude, supported by the skilled and versatile academic team.

The project was indeed a great experience and very useful for our company. The UNCW students were professional and delivered excellent research and recommendations.

I would highly recommend this for any business.”

“Cooperation with GIOBA and the University of North Carolina Wilmington has been exciting and valuable.
The business case developed, explored a complex market expansion topic from an unusual angle.

Individually, groups of students approached interest in our product categories on the U.S. market across various scenarios and among diverse target audiences. Ideas and business solutions proposed by students were fresh and creative, giving us interesting and inspirational inputs. The original approach of students towards target audience diversification and product offering touched me.

I would suggest this type of exercise related to the concrete business case development to all companies who look for fresh and unusual approach while defining their strategies and eventual expansion plans.

It has been a beneficial experience for both parties, for students who learned a lot while thinking about a complex business scenario, building on a concrete example. And as well for us. As a company, we appreciate cooperation with young and fresh minds, which is always exciting and inspiring.”

"Our company MOSER has always been focused on export markets thanks to its specific product portfolio, tradition, and history. So far, we have implemented sales activities through traditional partner channels, relying on their market knowledge and the ability to promote and sell our products in their territories.

I must honestly say that at the beginning, there was a certain distrust of our owners and C-level management, whether the bachelor's students could handle the consulting level presented to us in the proposal for the assignment of both projects. 

We were positively pleased by the level of the presented results and the quality of the project elaboration, which we would expect that rather from students at the MBA level. We appreciate the native Americans' view of the analysis and recommendations for the US market. None of the local managers and employees can replace this.

 

At the same time, we appreciated that students were not afraid to go beyond the edge of our standard "operational blindness," which most companies that do not use external consultants find themselves in. I would recommend such a project to any company that wants to know better the needs of the market in which it intends to export its products in the future."
