Strategy & Operations Consulting

550A

Course Description:
This course focuses on the introduction to, and overview of, general management consulting. The course is composed of two primary facets: 1) an overview of the management consulting industry (predominantly in North America, but important global factors will be included as well); and the 2) an introduction to practical dimensions of a consulting project, including required capabilities. The overview of the industry explores origin/background, current industry and segments, principal participants, trends, critical success factors and future predictions. The second section of the course in mod II, MGT 550B, covers the entire life-cycle of a consulting engagement. This course is delivered across mod I and II. Due to the structure of the course practicum, students must enroll in both courses. Students may be asked to withdraw at the end of mod I if they are unable to be effective team members. Pre-requisites: MGT 355 and MGT 371 [2]
