Consultants can now take a masters degree in management consultancy at the Management Consultancy Business School. The course was developed by the school, headed by Elizabeth Gluck, in partnership with the University of Surrey, and under the the guidance of a joint Management Consultancies Association and Institute of Management Consultants steering committee.

It includes: MCA executive director Brian O’Rorke, Alan Reid, chairman of KPMG Management Consulting, Vicky Wright, president of the MCA, Barry Curnow, past president of the IMC, Professor Peter Jarvis and Dr Paul Barber of the University of Surrey, Elizabeth Gluck, and Peter Chadwick of Kogan Page.
