The Executive MBA

An International teamwork experience

The International Consulting Project (ICP) puts into practice the concepts and
theory acquired during the Executive MBA.

It provides participants with a collaborative and intercultural work experience on a real-life strategic challenge.

Within a group, you perform an in-depth analysis and make recommendations for actions that can realistically be implemented by a company:

- Analysis of an industry and new business opportunities

- Reorganisation of a subsidiary or a department

- Evaluation of consumer trends in light of product development

- Implementation of a production unit or a business network

Leadership and Diversity: Key Success Factors from an International Consulting Project

Every year, ESCP Europe Executive MBA students select one project that will accompany them throughout the course of their studies, the International Consulting Project (ICP).
In 2017, one project distinguished itself through the unique quality of the outcome as well as its team dynamics. Named “some of the most outstanding work in years“ by Executive MBA and Executive Masters Programmes Director Valérie Madon, it serves as a good example of  ESCP Europe’s focus on people, a good reference for future ICP teams as well as providing insights on the reality of working in inter-cultural teams remotely.

“The International Consulting Project (ICP) extends the scope of analysis to a working group with various and complementary profiles. It is an excellent way to apply the teaching of the Executive MBA programme on audit and consulting assignments. As you expand your analysis skills and insights and work in a project mode, you learn how to better respond to operational and forecasting challenges.”
