Corporate Consulting Projects: learn, apply and network!

Consulting projects are an essential component for the MBA and constitute the capstone of the program.

The MBA course offers students the opportunity to work on concrete projects, sourced by companies, and to have them actively involved in strategic decision-making and recommendations to specific corporate opportunities, challenges and issues.
Moreover, the strategies that are recommended are constrained by financial considerations. Students apply what they have learned in class, as well as critical thinking skills, strategy formulation and implementation, and project management and team working skills.

Recent MBA Corporate Consulting Projects include:

  • Parkview Private Collection: design a social media strategy for its Luxury Business Unit- Beauvallon.

The thing I probably appreciated the most about the Monaco MBA was that the professors constantly pushed me to venture beyond my comfort zone and think outside the box to find innovative solutions and improve my business proficiency.
The MBA experience has definitely made me more prepared and confident to manage business complexities and turn paper strategies into real-life ones.
IUM’s milestone weeks, which happen five times over the course of the program, were particularly enjoyable, involving career development activities, networking events and business simulations.
Receiving direct feedback from top executives and business directors has been crucial to my personal and professional development.
It’s also improved my project management skills, and has given me greater confidence in taking vital strategic decisions. I certainly use the knowledge I gained at IUM on a regular basis, whether it be financial analysis, risk management, or strategic marketing.
