Consulting Concentration


MBA concentrations have been replaced by graduate certificates beginning in the Fall 2017 semester.  Students who matriculate into their MBA program starting in the Fall 2017 semester and are interested in specializing should review the graduate certificates available and reach out to their assigned academic advisor with any questions.

Students who matriculated prior to the Fall 2017 semester may complete either a graduate certificate or concentration by completing coursework as outlined by the academic department.

Description:

The Consulting concentration prepares students to enter this fast-growing and lucrative part of the modern economy. With an emphasis on key consulting competencies, this concentration includes courses specifically designed and delivered to broaden students’ understanding of the purpose and function of consulting, provide real-world exposure to the discipline via practicums, and hone interpersonal skills related to effective intervention. The concentration includes a two-course sequence covering client engagement, proposal writing, needs assessment, program design, and outcome demonstration.
