management consulting in digital age

Course overview

The course objective is to provide master level students with an in-depth exposure to the way leading management consulting firms are developing digital transformation projects in order to be better prepared for a future career in management consulting. Digitalization is significantly affecting business models, business processes and organizational boundaries. To deal with the pace that digitalization is changing organizations, there is a need to understand and explore new skills and capabilities associated with digital transformation. Management Consulting firms are driving this transformation process. In order to do so they are recruiting consultants with skills and capabilities associated with digital transformation.

The course gives participants the opportunity to:

  • Deepen their knowledge on digital transformation processes
  • Get exposed to leading consulting/IT companies in terms of simulation of the working environment and recruitment opportunities.

The course is based on five business cases in five days dealing with how digital technologies (mainly Social Media, Mobile technologies, Advanced Analytics/AU, Blockchain and IoT/Cloud) are enabling business models innovation as well as business process redesign in the areas of Strategy, Marketing & Sales and Supply Chain.

Participants to the summer school will be invited to get at least a basic knowledge of digital transformation processes through a short online course.

  • Every business case is developed in collaboration with a leading consulting firm/software vendor covering the impact of a given   digital technology on a few business areas/industries.
  • Every day students, after an initial class on the topic, will work in team on the business case and in the afternoon will present their analysis to a senior consultant. Accenture, Capgemini, Deloitte, McKinsey and PwC have confirmed their participation.

The course will start on Sunday after with a warm-up sessions to have the chance to know each and to share the course approach.
The course will finish on Saturday morning with a wrap-up session, sharing the feedback on the course both as to contents and as to group dynamics.
