Level365 is pleased to announce that it is working with the Lacy School of Business at Butler University in the Spring of 2019. Students will do research designed to conduct a market study project on the trends and requirements of modern business communications. The project will also help Level365 understand the business needs of our clients and to provide better overall service. The results will be published on the Level365 website.

Lacy School of Business: Real-Life Experience
One differentiator for Lacy School of Business students compared to other business schools is the real world experience Butler offers outside of traditional classroom work. There are several ways students get this experience including consulting projects like this one with Level365. Below are a few other examples of student’s real-life experiences at Butler University.
Lacy School of Business requires students to complete two paid internships. These internships provide students the chance to apply what they’ve learned. Additionally, they acquire real-work experience that builds their confidence, resume, and sets them apart from other graduates after college.
Students also have a Career Mentor throughout their time at Butler. These mentors are former executives who have worked at prominent companies including Cummins, Anthem, Roche, and IBM. Career mentors help students discover career paths and interests—and how to structure their time at Butler to meet their goals.
Real Business Experience (RBE):
The RBE provides students the opportunity to create and run their own business. Students form teams, create a business idea, apply for funding, and start and run their own business. The school also provides an experienced team of faculty and professional mentors to help coach and consult students.
Consulting With Level365: Learning Beyond The Classroom
In addition to the above examples, many classes at Butler University’s Lacy School of Business incorporate
As part of the project, a team of four Senior Marketing students is leading a consulting project. They will focus on providing Level365 with information, insight, and research to provide better overall service and to identify needs and trends in modern business communications. The students put together a Statement Of Work (SOW) and are working on this project similarly to how a consulting engagement would work in today’s business environment.
Level365’s History With Butler University
When Professor Daniel McQuiston reached out to Level365 about this opportunity there was no hesitation in participating. This is a great opportunity to help provide students a real-life business experience and also receive valuable feedback. Level365 currently works with the Lacy School of Business to provide real-world experience through their student intern placement program, as well as providing business mentorship through participation in specific sales and marketing business courses.
This consulting project is a win-win for both the students and Level365. Students are given hands-on, real-life experience and Level365 benefits from a fresh perspective, a willingness to learn, and new ideas. We look forward to the results as well as further engagement with Butler’s Lacy School of Business. We hope to continue in the future with these types of projects and hosting interns at our company.
