Spring Grow Irish Week provides you an opportunity to deepen your professional experience through a more intensive and intentionally cross-functional consulting project. These projects bring together teams of students across Mendoza’s graduate degree programs in order to enhance your communication and collaboration skills in interdisciplinary and cross-functional settings.
"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, MSM '23
