MBA Global Consulting Project (GCP)

The Global Consulting Project is the culmination of the core course and provides the opportunity for our MBA students to apply their knowledge and skills in the real world. The host organisation identifies an important management issue it would like investigated. A team of five MBAs then work for a four-week period to analyse the issues and generate recommendations.

What types of project are possible?

Proposals are welcome on any aspect of management and from any commercial, industrial, public sector or not-for-profit organisation, either in the UK or abroad. Students are usually based at the client organisation for some or all of the project. Previous projects have included complete strategic reviews, benchmarking and best practice analysis, diversification assessments, new market strategies - in short, management assignments of all types. Our hosts have come from Europe, Australia, Latin American, China, Korea, Russia and North America and have included consultancies, multinationals, charities, investment and commercial banks and Cambridge-based technology companies.

When does it take place?

The project is undertaken in teams of five from mid-March to mid-April each year, with teams typically spending three to four weeks full-time on the project.
