What is the Business Consulting course? How is it structured?

MGMT*4050/4060 is a live and fluid project-based course that engages students with challenges facing community organizations. Project requirements will vary based on the needs of the assigned business. Course activities include group work, meetings with your client, research, progress meetings, reports and presentations. This course relies heavily on commitment and participation by students and expects students treat the course like they would a business environment in the “real world”. The weekly allotted class time is used for weekly 15 minute updates and we meet as a class four times for collaborative sessions.

Students work as consultants in interdisciplinary teams of 2-­4 to investigate and propose sustainable solutions to live cases put forth by real-world clients. There is a midterm presentation and report and a final presentation and report. There are no exams.
