As part of its planning and developing process, GE came to BGSU’s College of Business during the fall semester to work with the senior-level Applied Business Experience (BizX 4000) lab course to offer students an opportunity to gain insights on how a successful company develops concepts for the capabilities of intelligent light bulbs, as well as markets them to consumers.
