Our program

Program structure


We work around the two semesters per academic year: Fall (Sep - Nov) and Spring (Feb - April). 

Project work starts after the client kick-off and continues until the final deliverable is due.
Students teams usually meet their clients 3-4 times per month and are expected to attend 4 training sessions over the semester teaching and reinforcing key consulting skill sets.
Projects last for 8-10 weeks, and conclude with a client presentation and case competition, where students get the chance to practice their presentation skills to practitioners from top consulting firms.
