If your proposal is accepted, you will be contacted by the King’s Business School Project Team who will partner your business with a student group of three/four. The students taking part in the programme will be final year BSc students studying a business/management degree at King’s Business School (Business Management, Economics & Management, International Management, or Language and Management). To support their work, students will be taught by Catherine Tilley, a member of academic staff with extensive consultancy experience, having worked at McKinsey & Company for several years. Catherine was Director of Practice Operations at McKinsey for 10 years where she was responsible for the running of McKinsey’s work in the field of organisational consulting.
The consultancy will commence in late October 2019 and culminate at the end of the November (approx. 4 weeks). During this time the student groups will meet with their assigned businesses to discuss challenges, agree objectives and work towards them. At the consultancy period’s culmination student groups will provide their final analysis and recommendations in the form of a presentation and accompanying written report which your business can use to achieve its goals going forward.
