IDEAcorps MBA Consulting Challenge
The IDEAcorps MBA Consulting Challenge, hosted by Loyola University New Orleans and in partnership with The Idea Village, gives MBA students the opportunity to work with a real startup to solve a problem the founding entrepreneur is facing. Teams work intensively over four days to scope the problem, validate a solution, and give the entrepreneur a plan that can have real-world results and impact. In a culminating event, teams are judged by a panel of local business leaders on how far they have “moved the needle” for the founder and company.
The IDEAcorps MBA Consulting Challenge is a nationally unique competition that pairs MBA student teams with New Orleans-based entrepreneurs in order to see how far the teams can develop their entrepreneur's company in four days.
