Work as a strategic consultant

Methods and approaches used in the consulting industry to structure and solve problems are provided step by step. Participants are also familiarised with the role of consultants as catalysts for strategic and organisational change within companies. The independent development, synthesis and presentation of possible solutions in teams allows participants to develop their ability to solve problems whilst working under time pressure.
