Magelli Office of Experiential Learning

At Gies, we’ve taken the lead in making experiential learning an integral part of the student experience. The Magelli Office of Experiential Learning provides opportunities for Gies students to gain hands-on experience working on real-world projects for real clients. Not only are the experiences valuable for every Gies student, our clients also see real, tangible benefits for their businesses.

The Magelli Office of Experiential Learning works closely with faculty to incorporate action learning projects in courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, including online content. The Magelli team welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with you to:

  • incorporate an action learning project into a course.
  • connect with a company or person looking for business solutions, research, or that is interested in sponsoring a project.
  • connect with a company or person interested in furthering engagement in the classroom.

Project-based action learning courses bring education alive for students, deepening their understanding of their coursework and broadening their skills. Experience working with clients means students graduate more prepared for the real world, more prepared to add value from day one, and more prepared to succeed in their careers.

Gies students may also work on real-world projects through co-curricular programs, like Illinois Business Consulting, Illinois Design Consulting, or EntreCORPS, where they collaborate with students from different disciplines across campus.
