With sound knowledge in general business management and a specialisation in your preferred area, you can go on to find a successful career in a company and country of your choosing.
As a management consultant, your job is to advise other companies. The subject of the consultation could be related to the general management of the company, internationalisation projects or the handling of a change process. You will need to tailor your fundamental consulting concept to the expectations and the requirements of your customer, without neglecting the goals of your employer – the consultancy firm.
