Is there ONE part of your business holding you back from the success that you’re working so hard for?
Now you have the opportunity to build your business smarter and faster than ever before!
Announcing FREE consulting support from MBA students and faculty!
Sunshine Suites has forged a new partnership program with Baruch College that can benefit your business in a big way.
We are seeking 40 to 50 Shiners to receive 30 days of FREE intensive, hands-on consulting from a carefully chosen team of MBA students at the Zicklin School of Business at Baruch College. All work will be supervised by faculty members of the college.
The students, many of whom are working towards a Masters Degree in entrepreneurship, are currently employed by or have held positions at top-tier financial services and technology companies. They have expertise in areas ranging from finance and accounting to sales, marketing, business development, IT, operations and logistics.
To participate, you will have to pinpoint an area of your business that needs improvement. While you will not have to divulge financial records or anything you consider proprietary, you will have to specify the area in which your company has a defined problem or a distinct opportunity. Students will select companies based upon their area of interest and aptitude.
You will need to prepare a brief for the students with an overview of your company and a description of the area in which you need consulting support. When you enroll in the program, we will provide you with a form you can fill-in and submit.
The students will zero-in on your company’s particular issues. They will evaluate and analyze the challenges you described and propose solutions to your unique business issues. The final deliverable will be a detailed plan to directly attack the issues you have identified.
Shiners and students will have certain obligations to one another. Keep in mind that your time, your candor and your best efforts will make this mutually beneficial. Here’s what is expected of participants:
>Prepare a brief, describing an area in which your business needs to improve
>Meet each week at a specified time with your team of students
>Be completely candid about your business, your strategy and what you want to achieve
>Provide detailed feedback and direction at each session; criticism should be instructive and well thought out
>Bring an outside perspective and working experience from other industries
>Provide focused consulting and added brainpower to your business
>Have a direct academic/financial incentive to do their best for you
You will have one week to apply. Deadline for entry is Tues. February 15. Participants will be selected by Baruch college students and their advisors in accordance with course objectives and program requirements.
This is a pilot program. If it is successful, we will offer it again next semester.
To enroll, please contact Russ in the Sunshine Suites office for an application form.
