MBA Team Consulting students to offer solutions on how HCESC can better deliver programs and services for New Jersey school districts

(NEWARK, NJ, January 6, 2010) – The Hunterdon County Educational Services Commission (HCESC) will work with representatives from the MBA Team Consulting Program at Rutgers Business School (RBS) on a strategic plan to assess HCESC programs, organizational structure, and financial model.

A team of second-year MBA students will work as consultants to HCESC recommending solutions to challenges faced by the Commission. “We are very excited to be working alongside HCESC,” said Dr. Susan P. Gilbert, Program Director and Associate Dean at RBS. “The Rutgers MBA Team Consulting Program continues to expand its alliances with and make an impact on the New Jersey business community and government.”

The team will work with Dr. Gilbert, as faculty advisor and other experts in corporate strategy, marketing, supply chain management, and finance to bring state-of-the-art analytic tools and methods, as well as a fresh outlook to HCESC’s mission, program offerings, and structure.

“The Commission is looking to the MBA Team Consulting Program to help develop our five-year strategic plan. HCESC’s philosophy regarding shared-services enables school districts, by pooling resources, to obtain overall savings.

The MBA Team Consulting program was established over 40 years ago and has performed over 1,600 separate reports for clients ranging in size from one-person startups to Fortune 500 firms. This is the second time RBS has worked with HCESC through the program. The 15-week engagement starts at the end of January.
