THE RALPH JAESCHKE SOLUTIONS FOR ECONOMIC GROWTH (SEG) CENTER

The Ralph Jaeschke Solutions for Economic Growth (SEG) Center is a premier vehicle for project-based learning at UW-Parkside. We bring together local community businesses with the students and faculty to create a joint venture that benefits all parties involved.

ABOUT SEG CENTER

The SEG Center provides an opportunity for students to gain hands-on experience working with companies and organizations to solve business problems. Student teams are assigned to selected projects and are run using a strict project management approach.

  • All teams have a faculty member with whom they work throughout the duration of the project
  • Continuous interaction with the client ensures that the teams are delivering a final solution that is in-line with the overall problem and needs of the client


STUDENTS…

  • learn to identify issues and work to find a realistic solution given the environments within which they are working
  • learn project management and the importance of being able to deliver a final solution or product on-time and within budget
  • receive hands-on work experience in finding solutions to business problems


ORGANIZATIONS…

  • gain new perspectives from individuals not closely aligned with their business
