POY 2020/2021

Deadline extended to October 15, 2020

This year may look difference, but our Project of the Year (POY) competition is still going strong. SBI encourages its members and other college and university faculty to involve students in practical consulting projects. Consulting projects serve clients who own or operate local small businesses. Supervised by faculty, these projects provide students opportunities to help make lasting improvements in their clients' business operations. As a result, students learn about business, gain a sense of achievement, and earn respect. Student consulting projects culminate in a final written case report which is delivered to the client. The purpose of the Project of the Year (POY) competition is to recognize outstanding student work in consulting.
