Fisher's Global Applied Projects: nurturing day-one-ready business leaders

In pursuit of preparing leaders to be 'day-one-ready' for the dynamic business landscape, the Fisher College of Business developed the Global Applied Projects (GAP) program. This signature program offers MBA students an optional experiential learning capstone-like opportunity that turns theory into practice.

One of the eight 2024 GAP projects is unfolding in India. Five Fisher students are immersed in a transformative project with Tata Play, a key player in India's renowned conglomerate, the Tata Group. Launched in January, the project involves on-site work at Tata Play, with students tackling real-world challenges. In March 2024, they will travel to India for an immersive experience, contributing directly to the project before returning to campus for thorough data analysis and the finalization of project deliverables.

By working directly with leading organizations globally, students hone their business acumen, gain professional consulting experience, and develop increased global and cultural awareness while solving multidisciplinary and multifaceted strategic business challenges.

Fisher's commitment to bridging theory and practice is evident in the Global Applied Project, ensuring that graduates not only grasp theoretical concepts but also acquire practical skills essential for navigating the complexities of the modern business landscape.
