In-Company Project

Applying the acquired knowledge to real world business challenges, students develop their consulting skills in a self-selected company environment ranging from start-ups to multinational enterprises. Companies that have participated in our MBA In-Company Project include Avanade, TomTom, Heineken, Vodafone, Philips and several start-up companies.
