Student Research Assistance
The Program links each incoming foreign company with a team of students from the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business and Binghamton University’s Watson College of Engineering and Applied Science. Under the guidance of faculty, assigned mentors, and industry experts the student teams address a variety of specific questions on how to grow the company venture and expand its operations in the U.S. market.
The Cornell SC Johnson College of Business will engage teams of graduate and advanced undergraduate students
to provide research to the participating companies for the development of their business plans for expansion into the U.S. market. Each team will be guided by a faculty advisor. The Office of External Relations and Engagement at the College of Business will administer the student engagement.
Binghamton University’s Watson College of Engineering and Applied Science will engage graduate engineering students in the form of internships with Watson’s Strategic Partnership for Industrial Resurgence (SPIR) Program. Relevant faculty advisors will be assigned to the student interns.
