NYU SPS is a school committed to offering world-class courses in applied professional studies across multiple disciplines. Students are grounded in theory then asked to apply those theories to specific professional practice areas. NYU SPS Real World puts the ¿applied¿ notion of student learning to the acid test. In this course, students will not apply their knowledge to an assignment in the classroom but to real world problems/challenges faced by real world organizations. In this series of courses, a real world organization assigns students real world problems for which they need actionable solutions. On the first day of class, the organization will present a brief outlining an organizational problem/challenge that needs an actionable solution. SPS students will work in multi-disciplinary teams in fluid consultation and communication with organization leaders and SPS faculty to research, prepare and present their solution on the final day of class. Selected ideas/solutions will be chosen by the organization to be implemented, concretely, into their real world organizational practice.
