Global Research Project

MSc Management students carry out a consultancy project in a small team. Many
students have enjoyed the consulting project more than any other part of their
MSc Management degree.

The project involves a period of consultancy work carried out by a team of students for a client company. For example, students may be asked to design a new fund for an investment firm or help an entrepreneur to bring a new product to the market.

Most clients are small enterprises, allowing students direct access to company owners and letting them gain a holistic understanding of how businesses are run. Consultancy teams may include students from London Business School via the HELO project.


In addition to academic subjects, students have the opportunity to attend
a series of innovative and interactive workshops aimed at improving their
management and leadership skills:

Effective Presentation Skills

Effective public speaking is a skill that is highly valued by employers. In this workshop, students prepare and make brief presentations which are filmed and discussed in
small groups.

Leadership Presence through Theatre

In this workshop students will be introduced to dramatic techniques that will allow
them to embody leadership in order to help them inspire others. Workshops will be
conducted by a theatre professional and will take place in a London theatre.

Mindfulness and Leadership

In this workshop students will be given the opportunity to experience mindfulness
directly through various practical exercises. The purpose is to improve students'
self-awareness and control in order to enhance their leadership skill.

International Summer Schools

Students will have the opportunity to spend two weeks attending workshops
and seminars in a university abroad. Partner schools include HEC Paris and
Tsinghua University in Beijing.
