The ability to use multimethod data is an increasingly desirable skill set for business practitioners. Projects that allow business students to practice mixed methods research create a valuable opportunity to improve work-readiness skills. This research tests the benefits of a mixed methods, client-based project, which was a collaborative effort between a marketing research class and a marketing strategy class. The authors applied the experiential learning model in creating and assessing this project. Results demonstrate that students reported gaining several professional development benefits as a result of participating in this project, including enhanced communication and teamwork, and data analysis and triangulation skills.
