The IDEAcorps MBA Consulting Challenge is not your typical case competition. The IDEAcorps MBA Consulting Challenge, hosted by Loyola University New Orleans and in partnership with The Idea Village, gives MBA students the opportunity to work with a real startup to solve a problem the founding entrepreneur is facing. Teams work intensively over four days to scope the problem, validate a solution, and give the entrepreneur a plan that can have real-world results and impact. In a culminating event, teams are judged by a panel of local business leaders on how far they have “moved the needle” for the founder and company.
