In the fall semester, you are eligible to participate in a Management Practicum. During this course, students work with faculty members and advisors – who have extensive management consulting experience – on real consulting projects for companies. Projects typically focus on areas of specific interest to One-Year MBA students, including biotech, technology, finance, and pharmaceutical.
The practicum project lasts throughout the fall semester where students conduct client interviews, data analysis, and prepare presentations highlighting their problem analyses and recommended solutions.
One-Year MBA students also participate in a curriculum of focused career planning. Highlights include: individual career assessment, interaction with alumni from a wide variety of industries, and opportunities to practice and receive feedback on self-marketing pitches, networking conversations, and interviewing.
