Client-based projects for Public Management students sought

The La Follette School of Public Affairs is seeking client-based projects for its Introduction to Public Management course. Students in the graduate-level course work in teams to complete the projects under the direction of Director and Professor Don Moynihan.

Applications from public-, nonprofit-, or private-sector organizations are due January 10, 2018. Alumni are encouraged to apply.

Based on the client’s request, each group produces a written analysis and presentation. Topics reflect the client’s interests related to a management challenge or issue. There is no cost to clients.

The most important element for assessing the viability of public management projects is a clear and high-profile client with a contact person in a position to respond to students and facilitate conversations.

Prospective clients must submit the following information to Moynihan This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by January 10. If submitting multiple proposals, please do so in separate email messages.

  • Organization name
  • Client sponsor names, and (if different) person who will serve as the primary point of contact and liaison with the student teams throughout the project, and contact information for both
  • Brief description (1 to 2 paragraphs) of the key questions to be addressed

Moynihan will review project proposals and respond to prospective clients in mid-January.
