We'll give you a grounding in key business areas followed by consulting modules to give you knowledge in this specialist field. The approach to the course includes learning from industry consultant practitioners and building insight and practice with clients and specialists.
During Term 1 and 2 you study the core modules and your choice of an elective module. The core modules provide key management and business expertise, all designed to contribute to a consulting career. In Term 3 you will study your fourth specialist module and an optional module. You also follow the course content relating to either the Dissertation or Business in Practice route.
We offer a range of optional modules which reflect the research strength of WBS across the business and management disciplines. You undertake one optional module in Term 2 and in Term 3 (if you choose the Dissertation route, your Term 2 optional module must be Research Methodology).
