Project Connect is a unique experiential learning component of the University of Kentucky’s full time MBA program. Participating in Project Connect happens simultaneously with the candidate’s coursework, providing them with the opportunity to apply what they are learning to real-world projects in the marketplace. Student teams devote 70-80 hours per person per project, working with their company sponsors to perform research analysis, and develop strategies to address their company sponsors’ business needs.

"We are very thankful to have another great group of companies, as well as project sponsors, participating in this year's Project Connect program," said Karl Gustafson, MBA Academic Director at the Gatton College of Business and Economics. "For our company sponsors, they receive valuable research and impactful recommendations from our MBA candidates. For our MBA candidates, they are able to hone their business skills by applying what they are learning in the classroom to real-world projects while strengthening their teaming and management skills.”

The University of Kentucky MBA program and the Gatton College of Business and Economics would like to thank the following companies for their participation and partnership in Project Connect for the upcoming academic year:
