Master Consulting: A Guide to Corporate Development

It is often a critical view from outside that reveals new opportunities: management consultants are usually hired when an organization has reached its limits.  As external or internal partners, they develop suitable growth strategies, optimize processes or initiate a complete reorientation. The diversity of their projects and their insight into different corporate cultures make the consulting industry ideal for managers who want a steep learning curve.

Career booster CBS degree

At the Cologne Business School, you will learn in the part-time master “International Business – Strategic Management & Consulting” the specialized knowledge to evaluate risks and potentials of business decisions. Already during your studies, you apply these skills in a Business Simulation Game. Your studies will be rounded off by a Business Skills course as well as a number of other courses.

Junior staff for the consulting industry

Flexibility, decisiveness and high professional competence are only three characteristics of successful consultants. In order to carry out an inventory within the shortest possible time, you need profound specialist knowledge in all areas of business administration. With the part-time master’s programme “International Business – Strategic Management & Consulting” you will acquire the tools to successfully master these challenges.

From student to young expert

Proven methods and strategies ensure that consultants can work faster and more efficiently. In the first two semesters at the Cologne Business School you will get to know these methods in seminars such as “Strategic Analysis and Management”, “Consulting Techniques” and “Evidence-based problem solving – CaseLab”.

Accompanying the strategic relaunch

Change processes in companies usually encounter resistance, even though opportunities often lie in change. Consultants give their clients the security they need on their way to restructuring or mergers. Therefore, the focus of the third semester is on the topic of “restarting a company”. From the fourth semester onwards, you will also deal with the challenges of organizational structures and development and take part in a business simulation game with your fellow students. You complete your studies with a master thesis in the fifth semester.

Training on the job

Security in customer consulting cannot be studied – it must be obtained in the practice. During your on-the-job master’s degree, you will have the opportunity to participate in a Business Project and a Business Simulation Game. Our lecturers will also give you an authentic picture of the profession and have a large network of industry representatives at their disposal through their practical experience.

Your way to master consulting

Graduates of a bachelor’s degree in economics can apply for a place in the part-time master’s programme “International Business -Strategic Management & Consulting”. Advanced English language skills are a requirement for the English-language courses.
