MSc Management Consultancy students present at Aberdeen Asset Management

MSc Management Consultancy students present at Aberdeen Asset Management

Students from the University of Aberdeen's MSc in Management Consultancy programme made the final submission for their degree with a group presentation at Aberdeen Asset Management.

The presentation of a training needs analysis conducted by the student group was organised by Sarah Smith, a Talent Manager at Aberdeen Asset Management and herself a graduate from the University’s Business School.

The one-year MSc programme has been designed to introduce its students to the knowledge, skills and experience required by a management consultant, and comprises an intensive series of stimulating lectures, energetic seminars, and intensive small group work.

Students also undertake consultancy project work with major international firms, which is how this year’s student group came to present at Aberdeen Asset Management.

Praising the students for their professional presentation, Sarah Smith said: “At Aberdeen Asset Management we appreciate a fresh perspective, so as future consultants the students were given a real project and we welcomed their views and recommendations. 

“We recognise the significance of giving students experience where they have the opportunity to learn, grow and add value.”

Dr Julian Randall, who co-ordinates the MSc programme, said: “Employment in the consultancy sector is buoyant at the moment, and our course provides students with the knowledge and experience that can make a significant difference to their employment prospects.

“Our programme has the support and involvement of management consultancies and international businesses based in Aberdeen including the likes of Aberdeen Asset Management, Chevron UK, and PwC, meaning that our students gain invaluable experience that helps them prepare for a career in management.

“Not only this, but the course  is taught by specialist academic staff with experience in management consultancy, and it is the mixture of practical relevance and academic rigour that gives our MSc graduates the edge when it comes to seeking their first job in consultancy.

“Indeed, 30 per cent of this year’s students accepted a job offer before receiving their final results, based on what they had already achieved on the Masters programme.  This underlines the strength of the curriculum and its relevance to potential employers.”

The University of Aberdeen is inviting applications to the MSc in Management Consultancy.
