Learn consulting frameworks and build practical skills
Get an opportunity to apply your business education and develop consulting skills, while working on a real problem for a local client.
The MMS FCCP program is a 2-credit, graded experiential learning course that kicks off with an orientation in Fall 2 and takes place over 6 weeks in Spring 1. Teams are coached by a second-year MBA Engagement Manager and guided by faculty. The course consists of a series of classes that cover content like client communication best practices to strategic consulting frameworks. You will also meet regularly with your team and get the opportunity to present your insights to your client.
In Fall 2, you’ll attend a kickoff class to learn more about the program, meet your team, faculty advisor, and Engagement Manager, and understand course requirements before you dive into the project in the spring.
In Spring 1, you and your teammates will dig deep into your client’s business challenge, meeting regularly with your Engagement Manager to finalize the work scope, conduct research and analyses, and synthesize your findings into a presentation for the client. You’ll deliver final recommendations to their key stakeholders at the end of Spring 1. Throughout the course, you’ll be prompted to reflect on your own goals, provide meaningful feedback to your teammates, and grow from the feedback you receive.
