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 and culminates with a two-week winter internship experience 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.
