Assistant professor

Course is Online.
This course is designed to help students attack complex and ambiguous problems like a strategy consultant. The immersive, case-based course will give students the skills and confidence to navigate complex business problems and facilitate discussion around the psychology of decision making in teams.  During this program, students will learn a hypothesis driven structured problem-solving approach used by many top strategy consulting firms and apply this approach to mock case interviews and a live consulting project with a real-world client. Paired with the Career Center’s Propel Project-based learning program, students will have the opportunity to apply their problem-solving skills to a case provided by a real-world client.  During the project, each student team will be assigned an alumni mentor.
Must be available for a coach meeting from 5-6pm on Tuesday, January 3rd and a client meeting from 5-6pm on Wednesday, January 4th.
