The Denison alumni include recent graduates, some of whom are OS alumni just beginning their careers, and more seasoned graduates, who offer rich and varied work experiences and networking opportunities.
Topics include finance and investment, organizational change and development, marketing, advertising, public relations, organizational leadership and communication, e- commerce, and the role of personal values in career development.
The Consulting Projects
Students work as consultants for actual clients. Clients present the students with real-world challenges facing contemporary organizations. Student teams are asked to consider the issues facing their clients, formulate multiple solutions, develop project books, and prepare formal presentations. In the process, students strengthen their skills in negotiation, leadership, and teamwork, and come to appreciate more fully the role of individuals and teams in effective organizational functioning.
The On-Site Meetings
Students travel to various cities to meet on-site with experts in their fields. This year, travel includes trips to San Francisco and New York City for meetings with alumni and friends of Denison in both for-profit and not-for-profit settings.
