During the Global Consulting Project (GCP) small strategic teams of students consult with blue-chip multinational corporations or international organisations on a particular aspect of their business. Students are able to either pick their top three choices (which informs how teams are created and selected), or they can source their own project. The project is a highlight of the Cambridge MBA for many, providing a valuable opportunity to apply learning, experience new sectors or roles, travel and to build networks with a view to post-MBA career goals.

It was a good opportunity for us to apply a lot of the concepts we had learned during Management Praxis, especially around teamwork and how to manage client expectations.
