Tulane Gives Back Just Before Katrina Strikes
submitted by Bill Sandefer on September 1, 2006
The Tulane Team MBA met with community leaders to learn about their organizations. In roundtable discussions, the students brainstormed on how these organizations could be more effective in the community and then provided their ideas to the leaders. The students then distributed literature on community activities to local businesses. Finally, the team ended the day by participating in painting projects at two local schools.
After Hurricane Katrina, when the students returned to the school upon its reopening in January, they entered a course that sent them back out into the community as a team to serve as “reconstruction” consultants for businesses affected by Katrina. The students developed post-hurricane business plans and entered these plans in a competition at the end of the course. The winning business plan received $5,000 for its company!
