THE CONSULTANCY PROJECT
This is the cornerstone of the MBA program. Two partners (the participant and the company or the consulting firm), collaborate in putting together, developping and completing a company according to the following orientation: company audit, analysis, analysis of needs and objectives, negotiation strategy.
Each project enables the participant to use his/her analytical skills and to develop solutions and helps the company to define its objectives.
The participants are given access to a level of reflection and commitment in the business, to develop direct contacts with the upper hierarchy (corporate executives) to whom they submit their conclusions.
The Consultancy Project provides the company an effectives contribution within a specific field. The factor, which companies seem to appreciate the most is the exchange of ideas within a trained team of in-house managerial staff and external intervening parties. The companies expect a result from the participants (assisted by a Project Manager) that is similar to what would be provided by a consulting firm. The Consultancy Project provides the opportunity to reflect over a fairly long period (reflection, due to the lack of time, only few decission makers are able to do such analysis). The Consultancy Project also provides the company with the opportunity to assess potential candidates subject to outstanding conditions.
Each participant has a Project Manager who is a consulting lecturer as his/her co-ordinator. These managers are business management strategy consultants with international corporates. Their role is to orient, to direct and to consult the participant during his/her Consultancy Project so that the student can fulfill the objectives set by the host company.
In order to prepare for the Consultancy Project, all the participants must complete the project management course, which offers them a work methodology. The consultancy project follows by a professional thesis.
