Real-World Education. Innovative Solutions.

The 顶石咨询 Experience is the culmination of a MBA student's education put into practice to address an organization’s strategic or operational issues. 学生 combine work experience and knowledge from their practical business education to develop solutions for their client firms.

Real, Actionable Results.

The 顶石咨询 Experience provides a cost-effective solution for corporations, nonprofits, and governments that lack the time, budgets, or human resources to address specific strategic initiatives. Consulting projects are carried out by teams of students working under the supervision of a professor with extensive consulting and project management experience.
