Experiential Learning Opportunities (and More!)

LIU-iQ Consulting

LIU Post's first client-paid, student-run consulting program! Student consultants execute semester-long business cases for domestic and international companies. Recognized as one of LIU’s most rigorous and prestigious programs, students gain the managerial, analytical, and interpersonal skills needed to successfully land internships and full-time positions. Top performing students are also given the opportunity to participate in all-expense paid international business trips.

If interested, please contact Dean Graziela Fusaro at Graziela.Fusaro@liu.edu or Assistant Dean Christopher Bates at Chritopher.Bates@liu.edu.

Student-Run Businesses

Cultivate real-world business skills at LIU’s on-campus student-run businesses, such as The Student Body (a fashion boutique) and Browse (an authorized Apple products retailer and all-purpose technology center)! These micro-stores can provide real-world experience right on campus with running a business (accounting, management, marketing, etc.) as students independently manage, market, operate, and staff these ventures.

If interested, please contact: post-studentrunbusiness@liu.edu
