01/30/2008

Bhavik Rathod, a current MBA student who works for Illinois Business Consulting at the College of Business, spearheaded a project with Michael Boyne, PhD student in Chemistry, for the Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission based out of Washington D.C. The Commission needed expert advice for structuring a new online store to sell rare and popular products related to Abraham Lincoln to customers nationwide.

Bhavik and his team researched similar web-based businesses and potential suppliers to deliver a full business plan for the Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission.
