For the last 14 years, Cameron’s PMBA program has challenged MBA student teams with a “real-world” consulting project known as the Learning Alliance (LA). The LA project pairs regional businesses with teams of PMBA students that provide comprehensive analysis of the companies’ business processes and competitive environments, as well as strategic recommendations for growth and/or profit improvement. The SBTDC is instrumental in selecting LA clients and helping to manage the relationships between the clients and the student teams.
