We believe that the best way to learn is through real experience.
Therefore, we offer transformational learning programs that are based on
the Global Consulting Projects (GCP).
By addressing existing business challenges that client companies need to solve, students gain a thorough understanding of international business practices and cultural differences and develop transferable work skills in line with NACE Competencies for Career readiness.
Our projects and programs are time flexible and can be offered either as a semester module - autumn or spring, or as a separate stand-alone program offering.
The scope, length and complexity of all programs is designed to meet the level, academic knowledge and work experience of the students.
All of our programs are modular and can be easily integrated into any university business course.
HOW IT WORKS WITH US
As your global educational partner, we provide you with
high-quality services that will make your students stand out.
Together with you, we define the consulting project framework including key learning objectives
We find a suitable client company and create a comprehensive project assignment, including specific goals and schedule
Our senior project managers consult the students throughout the process, bring new cultural perspectives and provide valuable methodological support to ensure the quality of the results delivered
We organize vivid interactions between your student team and the client company representatives
In addition to demanding project work, students participate in additional business presentations, round table discussions or expert-led workshops, where they gain quality inputs needed for professional project processing, but also gain broader, generally applicable know-how.
At the end, we facilitate the final presentation of the project recommendations by the students for the client company which is the highlight of every learning experience
BENEFITS OF "GLOBAL PROJECTS" ACROSS THE UNIVERSITY
- FOR FACULTY MEMBERS -
GCP is a comprehensive module that you can easily integrate into your existing course and enrich your teaching with practical application
With us, you outsource everything related to securing the project, which allows you to focus more on creative work and interaction with students and support them in the implementation of the project
You will get clear feedback on the real knowledge but also the soft skills of the students
- FOR CAREER SERVICES -
GCP is designed to develop students' work competencies that reflect the current and future needs of companies and employers to succeed in the global economy - the ability to successfully collaborate and communicate with other cultures, understanding of global economic interconnectedness, etc.
GCP focuses on building job skills and prepares students for success in a highly competitive job market
- FOR EDUCATION ABROAD OFFICES -
GCP is flexible in time and allows participation in both semesters and not only in traditionally busy periods typical for organizing study stays abroad - spring break, etc.
Provides unlimited involvement of more students seeking international experience (as opposed to individually focused internships)
Financial availability of the program compared to costly traditional study abroad trips
A safe opportunity to gain international experience without the risk of cancellation in today's volatile world threatened by travel insecurity
SKILL GAPS AND WORKFORCE READINESS
The growing skills gap threatens the competitiveness of organizations today and in the future. As a result, the demand for preparing employable graduates is constantly growing.
U.S. Business Needs for International Employees also presented by NAFSA says that almost 40% of companies surveyed missed international business opportunities because of a lack of internationally competent personnel.
When 95% of potential consumers live outside of the United States, we cannot afford to ignore this essential aspect of higher education.
