Tampa, Fla., Target Corp. is working with University of Tampa students in search of some good ideas, according to The Tampa Bay Business Journal.
Target executives have given UT students two case studies focused on how Target can recruit top hourly and executive team members and on how the company can use technology to increase grocery sales at its SuperTarget stores.
Groups of students in the Sykes College of Business class Practical Strategic Assessment have broken up into groups of four to analyze the problems and seek creative solutions. A UT professor will pick the top four proposals and Target will ultimately choose which group's solution is the most creative, realistic and best presented.
A winner will be chosen on Dec. 7. It is the first time Target has coordinated such a program on UT's campus, the report said.
