Students

The Market Impact Hub offers a competitive student-lab assistant program.  Lab members assist faculty in conducting cutting-edge research and serve as a part of the initiative to grow and evolve the lab by developing strategies to promote findings, share relevant stories, and expand future Hub capabilities.

 

Lab members are expected to commit ~10 hours per week to MIH research or practice-related projects and be active participants in regular lab meetings.
