BA 518 Innovation in Practice is a course that focuses on innovation, the first phase of an entrepreneur’s life. Now a capstone course for all full-time MBA students, this course takes students out of the classroom and gives them hands-on learning experience by pairing them with a local non-profit organization to solve a real-world problem the organization is facing.
Since the course was established in 2004, 465 students have collaborated with 97 Tennessee non-profit organizations. In total, students and faculty assisting these non-profits have logged more than 36,695 hours.
