Experiential Learning

Transforming self to improve the world     


The Experiential Learning Collaborative (ELC) brings students and the business community together through collaboration on innovative real-world projects.

Participation in collaborative projects introduces students to contemporary business practices and helps business executives recognize the high potential of UConn students as their future employees. The ELC develops and facilitates the ecosystem of cross-disciplinary experiential learning, provides qualified help to client-partners, and introduces students to advanced business practices.

For client-partners, the ELC performs the role of an external multi-disciplinary R & D department, conducting forward-looking projects including market research and analytics, financial analysis, product/service innovation, business planning, management of organizations, web design, and more. For students, the ELC provides the wealth of learning from practical experience, helping them immerse into realities of the business world. For project mentors, the ELC offers an opportunity to apply their academic and industry expertise to facilitate student work on daring projects.

Our mutual commitment is the basis of joint success.
