We’re “all-in” on education!

We are passionate about students, educators, and brands. We believe collaboration is the most essential ingredient in the success of education. We’re going “all-in” to engage students through a compelling platform, to create a unique learning experience and drive participation. By combining rich data, engaging storylines, and robust technologies, we are forging relationships with educators and students in the classroom.

We Make it Easy to Track Student’s Performance

Students will make a variety of creative decisions for several new “resort offerings”:  Salon & Spa, Tattoo Mega-Studio, or Nightclub. Their work will have a major impact on brand identity and driving sales through strategy, creativity, and collaboration. Successful students will carefully consider the impact of their marketing plan — and whether it is aligned with their overall strategy.

 

Storyline

The Posh Hotel & Casino’s more than $150 million worth of additions and renovations include a new 10,000-square-foot tattoo mega-studio, and a new luxurious salon & spa.  Students will hear from the CEO explaining the task at hand.

Success Stories

While UHYPEIT is new for 2020, here is what people are saying about our previous experiences featured in universities across the country…

“I had so much fun and wish all courses had projects like this!” said BGSU junior Emma Sales. She was referencing the marketing class project where students launched a record label in the classroom.”  This was part of Dr. Greg Rich’s Introduction to Marketing (MKT 3000) course.

“I was happy with how the project went and felt that it was a great fit for the course.” He added, “I was thrilled with how hard the students worked.”

Professor, BGSU

“My favorite part of the experience was the hands-on element and how well it correlated with the previous lecture materials.  Additionally, I enjoyed getting to be a self-starter and figure out what works and what doesn’t.”
