Master's Consultancy Challenge

Master's students at the Management School have the opportunity to take part in the ‘We can work it out’ master’s consultancy challenge. Students form several groups and are presented with consultancy problems from a number of organisations.

 

In 2019, UnileverMandoAirbusSysdoc, Chester Zoo, PwC, SantanderOpen Programmatic, Deal Moon, Decathlon, Rad Wraps, Hays, and Totem learning all took part in the challenge and worked with our students. During the challenge students have access to a consultancy expert and benefit from workshops such as ‘developing consultancy skills’ and ‘pitching an idea’.
