PricewaterhouseCoopers has launched an MBA programme to help its consultants gain an in-depth knowledge of business administration combined with a consultancy focus.
The MBA programme will be piloted over a three-year period and will take two years to complete. The first group of US consultants will join the teaching programme in October 1998.
“The second class will start in September 1999 and will be open to consultants from Europe, Australia and Japan,” said Don Burkhard, principal consultant, training and development for PricewaterhouseCoopers’ consulting practice.
The course was developed in conjunction with the University of Georgia Terry College of Business and follows hot on the heels of the announcement that PwC will open a US $52m technology training facility in Tampa, Florida at the end of 1998.
