Each year, Marshall students and staff engage themselves in an Innovation Project around a problem. During 2016-2017, the students developed solutions to problems around transportation. They developed grant proposals on how to improve transportation. With a partnership with EW Consulting, the top 10 ideas from the school then went to the Metro Headquarters in downtown LA and presented in the boardroom to a panel of industry professionals their grant proposals. The work of Marshall students is being heard by the movers and shakers of the industry and has a direct impact on the Innovation and Policy surrounding Transportation.
