Panthers Accelerated Career Experience
Robinson students are motivated to translate their academic knowledge into real-world experiences and are willing and able to investigate an issue facing your business and offer recommendations.
PACE program students work in small teams of three to five people to help create solutions to an array of complex issues that companies either can’t solve or don’t have the time or resources to address. Our students possess outstanding academic records in a range of business concentrations such as accounting, marketing, finance, and management.
As part of PACE, students receive instruction in strategic planning and public speaking to ensure they are properly trained. They have 14 weeks to assess the issue and provide a recommended solution.

"We tasked the PACE [students] to develop a comprehensive report overviewing the Mexican and South American oil, gas, CNG, LNG and biodiesel markets for feasibility, sales, business development and regulations. The results of their efforts have streamlined our development strategy for entry into the Mexican fuel markets beginning in 2017."
