the International Management Practicum will extend the context of Johnson's management training to a global arena
The spring semester of '11 marked the launch of a pilot course under Johnson's new Emerging Markets Institute. The International Consulting Practicum is an extension of the current Management Practicum and will provide students interested in a career in management consulting with additional project experience in an international context.
For the course, teams staffed by a mix of Johnson and ESCP Europe (one of the foremost graduate schools in France and the oldest institution dedicated to business education in Europe), students will work on real international business problems for sponsoring multinational companies. This term, three of the five team projects will be on the Russian market.
An exchange component is planned with Johnson students joining their ESCP counterparts in Paris to plan their projects, and ESCP students visiting the Johnson at the end of the course to develop recommendations and prepare for client presentations.
The course is being conducted with 12 second-year Johnson MBA students and 12 ESCP students.
