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 2-3 times per month and are expected to attend 2 training sessions over the semester which are delivered by representatives from top consulting firms.
Projects last for 8 weeks, and concludes with a client presentation and the SBCP competition, where students get the chance to practice their presentation skills to practitioners from top consulting firms such as Bain, Deloitte and ATKearney.
Please refer to the sample project timeline
