Benefits to Companies

 

We believe organizations should have a fresh and low-cost option to traditional consulting, without sacrificing quality.

  • The quality of professional consultants at a fraction of the cost.
  • The opportunity to work with a team of 5 second-year MBA candidates with an average of 5 years of work experience who have completed the rigorous UCLA Anderson core curriculum.
  • 1,000-2,000 hours of strategic work over a 20-week period beginning in either October or January.
  • Exposure to new knowledge, research methods, and tools from one of the best business schools in the world.
  • Access to UCLA Anderson's extensive resources, including its network of professionals and academicians, and its comprehensive business and industry database resources.
  • Extensive primary and secondary market research and analysis.
  • A comprehensive written report and final presentation to senior managers.
  • An opportunity to put potential future employees to the test.
