The Consulting master`s programme prepares you optimally for a working life as a consultant. Companies and other organisations from all industries and orientations need support with their various challenges, such as a structural reorientation or the integration of a new HR software. This is provided by a team of external or internal consultants who have both relevant expertise and the ability to develop sound concepts through to implementation.
Would you like to be systematically prepared for your career start as a consultant in an all-embracing university education? In our German-language master’s degree programme “Strategic Management & Consulting” in Cologne, you will learn how the individual phases of the consulting process are carried out and how to use central instruments of management consulting in a customer-oriented manner. With the help of best-practice examples, you will learn in the Consulting master`s programme how innovative project management approaches are developed.
In the fourth semester you will complete your master’s thesis and have the opportunity to write it directly as part of a project at a management consultancy. In this way you will make your first important business contacts and get to know the daily routine of a consultant. Our Career Service will be happy to assist you in selecting a suitable company.
