The Industry Connect program allows your company to utilize UWM’s Lubar School of Business as an extension of your operations by tapping into Lubar students and faculty for project work.

Student Projects

Student-driven projects serve a business need for your company while allowing Lubar students to gain valuable real-world experience. Under the joint supervision of Lubar faculty and a sponsoring company representative, advanced students in the Lubar School of Business work on project deliverables over the course of a 15-week semester. Projects will be assigned two student consultants, each working 20 hours per week and paid as university employees. Students can work at the Lubar School or the sponsoring company’s facilities.

Cost: $17,500 per 2 – student project; $13,000 per 1- student project.

Research Projects

Lubar faculty have deep expertise in many areas of business and can employ advanced research techniques to help you explore strategic opportunities or address business challenges. With advanced degrees from leading institutions, our faculty can provide a different vantage point, backed by data, to meet your project’s deliverables in the areas of marketing, human resources, information technology, data analytics, supply chain, accounting, finance, entrepreneurship, and management. There is an expectation that results from the research projects may be published in academic journals after masking all proprietary information.

Cost: Terms and conditions set on a case-by-case basis as per the nature and scope of project.
