Senior Experience

Del Mar Fair Project Team

The Senior Experience Program matches teams of students with projects submitted by local businesses and organizations. Students gain by working as consultants on rigorous, real-world projects that require teamwork and application of classroom knowledge. Businesses gain by receiving concentrated attention from bright, energetic teams that provide a fresh, independent look at their projects. Each student team works under the supervision of a faculty member.

The nature of the problems or projects chosen for Senior Experience varies according to the organization. For instance, a student consulting team might be asked to:

  • Diagnose the causes of an accounting, finance, operations or an information systems problem, evaluate possible solutions and make a recommendation or possibly implement the chosen alternative
  • Conduct a feasibility study or write a business plan for producing a new product, enter a new market, or build a new facility
  • Analyze manufacturing processes, customer service workflows or a human resources program
