The Consulting Project
In line with EDHEC’s ethos of social and connective learning, you will work alone or in a team to make useful and actionable recommendations for your chosen organisation, just as a real consultant would, on a concrete topic linked to your career plan. Your choice of topic may be linked to a company you’d like to work for, one of its customers, or a company that you would like to found or take over.
You will be supported by an academic mentor and a member of the teaching faculty in this exercise.
Teams will defend their consulting project online to a two-person panel, including a corporate representative, which will examine the clarity and thrust of its conclusions, as well as the relevance of its recommendations.
In block 5, you will choose two electives from a range of cutting-edge topics designed to develop your technical and managerial skills. Each elective will run for 5 weeks and involve around 35 hours of work. For example:
- SME Governance
- Strategic Foresight
- Brand Management
- The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: How to Win in the Political and Social Arenas for Companies
- Business Applications of Artificial Intelligence (AI) etc…
