Objectives of the Classes
Marketing classes at Mihaylo College at CSUF are designed to offer a balance of theory and practice, and give students hands-on experience with real world projects. As part of the course requirements, students may be asked to work on a sponsored project. This is where you, the sponsoring client, come into the picture. You play a valuable role as a client for whom students do the project.
What Projects Can be Done?
A variety of projects can be done. The respective professors can discuss the specifics and appropriateness of any project with you. The following is a partial list:
Since there may be several competing requests, professors are likely to use the following criteria in deciding which projects to pursue:
You get valuable assistance at a very nominal cost. Previous clients have enjoyed interacting with students, and some have approached us for additional work or full time job offers for the students.
There are some constraints, however, which are as follows:
You will be responsible for presenting the project to the students (typically in the classroom) at the beginning of the semester. You are also required to be present at the final student presentation at the end of the semester. We would like you to give us a contact personâ€™s name who can be approached by students or the respective professors, when questions or need for clarifications, arise. In addition, you are expected to make a small donation to the department (which is not intended to compensate the professor), and cover expenses for the project. All checks should be made to CSUF Philanthropic Foundation Account 10500 (Marketing Department).
