Major in Management Consulting: Your consulting studies

McK, BCG, KPMG … successful companies are often recognized by the fact that they use the services of corporate consultancies. Especially in difficult situations. Consultants love exciting tasks and the change. The task is always to address the challenges faced by companies that have a direct impact on business success. With thought-out strategies and methods. The market for consulting services is booming, as globalization and digitization are causing huge changes and increasingly complex business processes. With your consulting studies at CBS, you will have the opportunity to become a management consultant at top international consultancies or at a specialized consultancy firm.

Your consulting programme at CBS is embedded in an International Business study as specializing in Management Consulting. Lectures are held in English – the language of consultants. In semesters 3 to 6 you acquire consulting knowledge and know-how. The foundations are consulting theories, tools, methods and, of course, project management. In the fourth semester, you put your knowledge to the test: You will work on a case study or a real case and present your solutions based on facts and using logical arguments. Just like in real life as a management consultant.

Analyze. Evaluate. Advise.

Anyone can have ideas. Sound strategies need a verifiable basis. And in business this is always numbers. You will learn how to analyse financial ratios, workflows and efficiency and develop measures accordingly. Not just with pure theory, but with case studies from the business world.

Awaken the entrepreneurial spirit

Many consultants switch over into the business world or go to work for themselves. Or they found a start-up or enter into a start-up right after graduating. Good, if you have a competitive edge through knowledge: How does strategic personnel management work? How do you deal with minimal resources? How to persuade investors? Which paths lead to growth? Important topics you learn a lot about when you study at CBS.

Travel around the world? Take off now in your course of studies

Some think expecting foreign experience from university graduates is too much to ask. But that’s exactly what our students can expect from their university. A semester abroad at a partner university is part of the CBS curriculum. Get to know the American way of business in California or the cultural differences in countries like South Korea or India. This intercultural competence will help you later on in your career when presenting strategies to international decision-makers so that you, too, are accepted. The compulsory internship gives you valuable insight into the real workplace. Perhaps with a business consultancy? Maybe abroad? Our network of cooperating companies and alumni is extensive.

A career in consulting? We will advise you

In Germany alone, there are more than 10,000 consulting firms. You decide which path you want to take. Do you prefer the big names, where huge career opportunities and extremely exciting projects await you just as much as an extremely performance-oriented environment? Or will you discover a subject that already fascinates you during your studies? Then you might be of interest for specialized consultancies. In any case, with your consulting studies at CBS, you show that you mean business.
