The Jones Graduate School of Business (JGSB) proudly offers the Action Learning Project (ALP) to the Houston corporate community. Now entering its 15th year, the ALP is a thirteen (13)-week, team-based consultative project, where MBA student teams tackle a company’s tough challenges and critical needs to provide detailed and actionable recommendations.

Program Details
Applications for 2015 Action Learning Projects are due by November 14, 2014. A portfolio of 21 projects will be needed and final selections will be made in December. However, it is to your company’s advantage to submit your proposal as early as possible. Student teams will begin work with their assigned companies and projects in mid-January. Final reports and presentations to the companies will be completed in early May 2015.

We appreciate your interest in the Rice Action Learning Project and look forward to receiving your application.

“ With multiple partners, we needed to get on the same page about the value of our business, and how to grow it. Our ALP team tackled a valuation and business growth project for us, and it’s been transformational. They got us focused on what really mattered in our business and what "healthy" looked like for us. How often do you get a focused group of highly professional, really smart people working on a problem for you? They took real ownership of our business and the challenges we faced – it's evident that Rice just develops students to think about business in a different way. ”
