The course consists of a research and consultancy project for external businesses by a team of three to four students from various levels and programmes, supervised by a FEB lecturer.
For ten weeks you and your team will visit an organisation, investigate their managerial issue and develop and execute a research plan. In the end you will present your findings and possible solutions to the management of the organisation.
BR&C is focused on reflecting on actual situations and analytically supporting the advice you offer a client.
Previous cases included establishing clients in the European market for a medical waste company, and developing a long run external brand awareness for a merchant in sustainable office furniture.
Note: although all students are more than welcome to apply, 1 out of 10 clients specifically asked for German students.
