The MSc in Management Consultancy provides a detailed understanding of the consulting industry - how it works, its dominant players, key success factors and the management issues that drive it,  how and when to use different consulting tools and methodologies, how to write a consulting proposal and other key skills needed to be a successful management consultant.

About

Guest speakers from the consulting industry, including recent course graduates, provide additional insight and expertise.

As part of the course, students work directly with companies, completing Company Clinics with SMEs in Semester 1, and a live consulting project for a client company in Semester 2. In addition, students have the opportunity to complete a company internship over the summer term. Students work one-on-one with a client company to complete a consulting project and gain valuable work experience in the process.

The ideal candidates of this course are graduates in business or economics keen to pursue a career in the highly competitive and increasingly global management consulting industry.

A part-time format has been especially designed in order to help professionals pursue studies without having to interrupt their career.
