It is anticipated that a student will complete the management consulting option in an effort to leverage his or her training in a primary functional option. The centerpiece of the option and the only required course is Consulting Practices, taken in the last semester. This course focuses on the nuts and bolts of managing a consulting engagement, the process of organizational change and development, and features a team-based consulting project. In addition to this course, a student will select three elective courses that cover process skills required of a management consultant.
Management consulting is a graduate-level concentration only; therefore, several of our students possess professional experience in addition to their academic preparation.
