Global Consulting Project

Cambridge MBA Global Consulting Project (GCP) participants

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.

We had to rely on a number of skills that we learned from the MBA so far. Probably most importantly was what we learned in Management Praxis, which is a course in how to work with team members who have different preferences and styles of leadership.
