Fellows Consulting Program
The Economic Development Fellows (EDF) Consulting Program connects local companies with graduate and professional students and postdocs seeking business consulting opportunities.
Student consulting teams are made up of graduate and professional students and postdocs seeking business consulting opportunities. These teams work with companies to identify a set of project goals and develop strategies for addressing your unique business challenges. Consulting teams are led by an economic development fellow, who serves as project manager and liaison between the student team and your business.
A variety of industries have taken part in the program, including medical devices, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, retail, and environmental technology.
Consulting teams engage in a wide range of project types, including:
- Product development strategy
- Market research
- Market entry strategy
- Marketing and sales optimization
