In 2019 SASSH started SPROUT to meet a need for Arts student engagement in case competitions with a STEM and/or Business focus. Years later, with over hundreds of student participants and high-profile partnerships, SPROUT has established itself as an interdisciplinary playground for experiential learning and professional development throughout the entire TMU community.
What is SPROUT
SPROUT is a 4-day cross-faculty undergraduate case competition at TMU, where an organization (from any industry) submits a business challenge for students to tackle head-on, and create solutions to real-world problems. Through inter-faculty collaboration, and by liaising with industry professionals and academic experts, students are coached and mentored to develop and present their ideas (and solutions) to diverse audiences.
