NYCLab

In Bard’s experiential NYCLab course, MBA students complete a yearlong professional consultancy in the first year of their business program. Over two semesters, MBA students work with corporate, governmental, and nonprofit organizations to solve sustainability-related business problems. Student teams are assigned clients based on the team members’ interests and skill-sets and are mentored by Laura Gitman, Vice President at BSR, a leading global organization that develops sustainable business strategies and solutions through consulting, research and cross-sector collaboration.

The 2017-2018 RFP for NYCLab project proposals has closed. The 2018-2019 RFP will be released in May 2018.
