Divided into three sub-teams, the Nielsen winter project will look at a client’s product portfolio, shelving and pricing strategy, and distribution to optimize the marketing mix. This project offers students a real-life experience to work on a client’s needs, research an industry, and evaluate a brand’s product mix.
SIBC Marketing and SIBC Consulting are excited to announce a project collaboration in January sponsored by the Orlando Magic. The project will combine Leaders and Members from both divisions with the goal to identify potential new brand partnerships for the Magic with strategic rationale for implementation.
Bain & Company
SIBC Consulting is excited to announce that we will be collaborating with Bain & Company in order to offer four projects focusing on determining future growth strategies for Meijer Grocery. Teams will have the unique opportunity to collaborate with Bain Associate Consultants in analyzing possible regions that Meijer should seek to enter and determining how they should enter the selected region within a 5-year timespan.
Ernst & Young
With a focus on data analytics in accounting, EY's winter project involves implementing the DuPont Method, a key framework to analyzing financial statements and understanding company performance. Members will define an analytics mindset, learn the ratios involved in the DuPont Method, and use this method to perform data analytics and data visualization techniques.
With a focus on the audit practice, Deloitte's winter project involves a thorough analysis of three different entities. Corroborative and contradictory evidence identified in the case study will be used to determine whether the management's assertion is accurate and if any additional information is needed to make a solid assessment from the audit procedure.
