Starting in the spring semester of your first year, you and your peers will have the opportunity to apply your business expertise learned in the classroom to a real business issue through a consulting project. You’ll work in a small team, and a chosen D’Amore-McKim School of Business company partner will present a real business challenge to your team to research and dissect. You’ll meet with company representatives throughout the process to ensure you understand the business environment and the challenge presented. By the end of the project, your team will have the opportunity to employ your leadership, project management, data analysis, and presentation skills to present a consulting project report to the assigned client.
Consulting engagements cover a broad spectrum of issues in traditional functional areas, such as finance, marketing, and strategy. You’ll also need to address complex challenges as part of your project, and look at how the accelerating pace of technological innovation is shaping the world and impacting the future of work.
