Student experience in applying what they’ve learned to real-world problems is a top indicator of workplace success. (Gallup)

Experiential project-based learning is a teaching method that involves students constructing and designing solutions to a industry specific problem offered by a company or non-profit partner. This project-based learning allows students to develop professional competencies and prepare them for workplace success.
