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.
According to Gluck, the MSc will enable those who want to move into consultancy to develop essential consulting skills. Gluck says that these skills are not present in other business management courses, including MBAs.
The course comprises distance learning, workshops and a new text book on management consultancy produced by Kogan Page.
The Guild of Management Consultants and the Management Consultancy Business School are offering a full scholarship for the Masters course. Candidates who want to apply should contact Elizabeth Gluck on: 0171 328 2822.
