The Consulting Abroad Program (CAP)
This blog is authored by first-year, Global MBA candidates at the George Washington University School of Business, who are participating in the program’s required Consulting Abroad Program, in 5 countries and various fields of business around the world.
The Consulting Abroad Program (CAP) is a required course in the core first-year curriculum of each Global MBA candidate, and includes both a component taught on campus in Washington, DC, in the spring of the first year, immediately followed by two weeks of travel to the client in-country at the conclusion of the spring semester. During this time, students work directly with their international clients in the client country.
Each project is led by a faculty member of the GW School of Business, and is built around the research expertise, industry experience, and professional network of each professor, taking into account regional and sector diversity. During the two weeks spent in-country, students work as business consultants for their partner organizations under the academic guidance of a lead faculty member, and participate in site visits and business meetings to institutions and organizations relevant to their consulting projects. At the conclusion of this two-week period students present their final recommendations to each client.
