About Tauber Team Projects:
 
The 2019 Tauber Team Projects resulted in $390.3 million in savings according to sponsoring company calculations, an average of $30 million per project over three years.
 
Each two to three person Tauber Team consists of graduate engineering and graduate business students. Along with receiving high-level corporate support from the sponsoring company, each team is advised by a College of Engineering and a Ross School of Business faculty member and overseen by a Tauber Institute Co-Director. The projects begin on-site in May and continue for 14 weeks. Students present the results of their projects and compete for over $40,000 in scholarships at the U-M Tauber Institute's annual Spotlight! Event held each September in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Spotlight! provides outstanding opportunities for students and corporate partners to establish relationships while exploring innovations in operations and manufacturing.
