Lab Courses: Theory into Practice
At the Kilts Center, we help facilitate experiential-learning opportunities at Booth—highly collaborative marketing lab courses in which students apply what they learn in the classroom to real-world projects for sponsor-clients.
Marketing lab courses help students develop a tool kit of knowledge and skills they can use to drive solutions in any post-Booth work setting. The Kilts Center connects clients facing specific challenges with Booth students who are eager to apply their knowledge and skills to real-world problems.
Students at Booth have brought their game-changing ideas to companies such as Google, Uber, Airbnb, Walmart, and PepsiCo, devising and proposing innovative business solutions with impact.
