A BCIT Business Consulting Project provides Business Management students the opportunity to work over a 10-week period with an organization to solve a business problem or challenge. Students work in a team of two or three to identify potential opportunities, conduct research, and recommend effective solutions. The end result for your organization is a comprehensive written report and an oral presentation outlining the student team’s recommendations and solutions. The Business Management program accepts approximately 30 project proposals per year.
