CEMS 000/5250 - Business Project (7.5 cr)



Description
The Business Project is the most complex program element of the (MIM/CEMS), as it involves at least three stakeholders: the students, the university advisor, and the client company. It mainly corresponds to a team field study project carried out by the students in Term 2. Corporate and Social Partners representatives would be invited to participate in the field study projects and offer a platform for the students to work on a real-life “problem” or managerial issue that companies would like to solve or to address. Students will develop consultant-client relationship with the organization to 1) analyze and diagnose the organization’s request: and 2) Develop the detected opportunities with proposed course of actions while applying the latest knowledge or theories in management research to problem solving.  The organization would pose challenges to the students as topics for their business projects and this topic list would be updated regularly. Faculty members from the School will serve as advisors on each project group. Each project group normally consists of three to four students and conducts a strategically focused study.
