Professional participants in the program were consistently impressed with the quality of the consultation received from the Cameron students. “I have a lot of experience volunteering with Houston universities,” said Kirk Coburn, an professional in the oil and gas industry with a background in startup companies. “Cameron students bring an amazing passion and curiosity to their work. My experience was superior results on consultations.”Other professionals, like Faisal H. Aboul-Enein, benefited from the program through access to such talented thinkers. “The experience helped give MBA students a chance to perform real work analyses,” said Aboul-Enein, who serves as Director of Board Relations & Strategic Initiatives and Chairman of the Advisory Board for the Center for Healthcare Innovations. “Better yet, the consultation benefited me because I got a talent pool of creative thinkers.” Aboul-Enein also commented how impressive it was to witness students take on this work in a startup environment, where they have no blueprints to follow.Although consulting projects have concluded for the year, they will continue in the upcoming fall semester.
