The York Business School MBA in Management Consulting provides students with an extensive knowledge and critical understanding of the management consultancy industry and an appreciation of the latest challenges and opportunities. You will gain an understanding of consulting techniques and methodologies and develop a range of transferable skills. The programme provides you with knowledge of the key theories, debates, and practices used in management consultancy and you will focus on developing skills and competencies which will be useful for a future career as a consultant.

The programme brings together relevant contemporary academic theory and research with a practical understanding of activities within organizations. You will explore issues that have a significant impact on organizations by working with others and building on both their experiences and your own. The programme provides opportunities for you to work with other leaders and potential leaders. This will be developed by enabling you to share knowledge, relate this to theories developed from relevant research, and learning by practical application.

Much of the learning is developed through the establishment of collaborative learning communities of programme participants and tutors – and you will become part of that community of learning. Your understanding is developed around the key skills, processes, and practices of management consulting. Solutions to real problems are suggested, discussed and analyzed within the learning community with the support of tutors and fellow learners.

The programme is international in its design and engages with themes on an international basis. Many different cultural contexts are utilized to help provide the setting for discussions. This distance and blended learning programme provides opportunities to grow global networks both virtually and also through the residential activity that creates an environment for cross-cultural peer to peer learning.

On completion of the programme, you will be able to critically evaluate a range of theories and models relating to organizations, management consultancy, innovation, and change, and apply these to real-life situations in order to inform your decision making. The network that you will develop over the duration of the programme often continues to be a supportive and strong community of practice post-graduation.

Most of the programme is delivered online, but you must attend a 5 day residential in either York or Zürich as part of the Dissertation module. This is an excellent opportunity to network with fellow professionals, share learning and understanding, and build global relationships, alongside learning about how to conduct academic research to support you in the completion of your capstone project.
