Abstract

International Business Consulting is the program's key consulting seminar. This is an ideal opportunity for students to submerge in the real business world as consulting interns and to carry out real-life client-oriented consulting projects for participating international companies. For the purpose of this field study a project portfolio of the existing and potential business partners – sponsoring international companies – is formed. While working on this project students apply the knowledge and skills they acquired during their studies in the master program. This innovative course has no analogues and is not available at any other Russian university examined by the author. The international companies participating in the “International Business Consulting” project also represent the base for student practical training and internships and the potential employers for the master program graduates.
