Consulting projects with global corporations are a cornerstone of the strategic human resource management specialization in the Wisconsin MBA Program. In a recent capstone consulting project, students designed a system to find leadership candidates in the IT department of TDS Telecom. Students used personnel data to assess risks of internal and external hiring processes, identified avenues for engaging candidates, and presented strategic recommendations to senior leadership at TDS.
Spectrum Brands enlisted students to find inefficiencies in their organizational structure. Students interviewed staff, created branding strategies, and summarized their recommendations for Spectrum Brands’ financial and human resource leadership. Collaborating with executives in leading industries to create innovative solutions to their human resources challenges is a hallmark of the strategic human resource management specialization in the Wisconsin MBA Program.
