From MBA Consultant to Client: “We recognized a need to complete a critical project that lacked internal resources and knew that Tippie’s MBA student consultants would bring MBA-level analytical and critical thinking talent at a very low cost. Not only was the project valuable to the division of AEGON, we were able to use the results across multiple business divisions.
In the BSC, Tippie MBAs are treated as consultants, not students. They're expected to handle themselves as on-the-job professionals with clients, BSC directors, colleagues, and supervisors. MBA consultants learn how real business works, participate in actual business decisions, and experience the impact of their decisions alongside the client.
All project teams are cross-functional, comprised of MBAs with concentrations in finance, marketing, or strategic innovation. MBAs choose the top three projects they would like to work on and then the BSC Directors assign the teams based on project scope, student experience pre-MBA, current MBA concentration, and skill sets necessary to complete the project successfully.
