Course Description

This course is delivered by a combination of lectures and seminars which will focus on development of key consulting skills. The majority of the course is delivered in seminar format involving group discussions and peer-to-peer feedback on presentations.  Students will also be required to visit their client businesses and meet with their assigned client representatives.  Regular presentations to report on the progress of each project form a key requirement of this course. 
 
For students with additional learning requirements, or where suitable real-world international business consulting projects are not available, the option of an individually assessed, online, international business simulation exercise will be available. This simulation facilitates the development of the same learning outcomes through experiential learning.
