International Consultancy Week

This module is the integrating element of the Modular Executive MBA core teaching, bringing together the theoretical elements of the programme so far in a practical experience, enabling you to draw out the principles from the core modules. You will be asked to apply your classroom learning to some very demanding problems often in a challenging business consultancy environment.

Consultancy is undertaken to bring added value to the client and the temporary nature of the field trip projects stands in contrast with class room teaching and as such requires the development of distinct research skills, organisation and interpersonal skills.

The projects typically focus on developing solutions for business development strategies, marketing, HR, finance or operational challenges. Throughout the data collection and analysis stages you will have the opportunity to test your MBA learning in the real world by applying it to real business problems as well as reflect on your own skills as a consultant, leader and team player in a new market, unfamiliar industry and culture.

You have one week to work with the company face-to-face and then a further four weeks to provide a full set of recommendations to the company which is assessed.
