SCBIZHELP: Information System for Linking Students with Real Business Problems
Radhakrishnan, Abirami; Crino, Michael D.; Davis, Steve; Camlibel, Levent
Educational Technology & Society, v8 n1 p8-16 2005
Academic institutions have come to recognize the value of involving business students in solving real business problems, but most lack a way to systematically and reliably bring the needs of the business community and the resources of the academic community together. Responding to this need, a Web site was developed to promote linking students with real business problems. It has helped identify projects in various functional areas that aided businesses and enhanced student learning. It is capable of supporting multiple universities within the state and across multiple states. Currently, business representatives can search for student expertise. A future version will also allow business users to post their needs to the Web site. (Contains 1 figure and 3 tables.)
