Spring Grow Irish gives MSBA students the opportunity to deliver data-driven insight to real clients through live data projects. Fast-track your career readiness through immersive corporate visits and alumni networking events arranged by the Grow Irish team in partnership with leading Notre Dame clubs.
"Notre Dame empowers us to apply our classroom experience to real-world specific issues. We utilized critical thinking and problem-solving skills to enhance a vital skill in the workforce: collaboration. The projects taught me the importance of effective communication and sharing ideas to achieve a common goal.Carter Loesch, Class of 2023
