These partnerships are a huge part of what makes the program work. Just teaching students skills with no practical way to apply the the skills learned would result in a great deal of work to be able to achieve something in theory. This doesn't land jobs. Providing the students with the opportunity to bring value to a company or an organization is essential to the learning process and understand their own worth o a team. While realistically applying the skills learned.
