Extended deadline for the 2009 round of MBA Field Consulting Projects

Wednesday, 01/04/2009

Join by April 22 and Create Value your Company can Use

In 1992, ALBA became the first graduate business school in Greece to have teams of MBA students deliver practical value to a select group of Greek companies, through the Field Consulting Projects (FCPs). Since then, more than 170 projects have been implemented. 

ALBA invites you to join the 2009 FCPs round, by submitting an FCP proposal to ALBA (by April 22nd). Ask yourselves what ALBA can do for you; which problem can the student teams help you to tackle? Which opportunity can they help you exploit? Each student team brings no less than 2,000 hours of hands-on, solution-driven work to their project, under the careful supervision of both an advisor from inside the partner company, and a member of ALBA faculty.   

ALBA is especially interested in challenging projects, which demand advanced analytic, research and planning skills from our students. These can extend across a range of management functions, from accounting and finance to HRM, production management and marketing. An international component to the project is doubly welcome: so far, students have undertaken projects in more than a dozen countries, from Tanzania to Rumania, from Cyprus to Germany.  

If you would like ALBA to create value you can use by running an FCP in your company, then please fill in the application form.

Successful projects, their student teams and faculty advisors, will be announced on May, 8, 2009.

For more information please contact Dr. Sarah Drakopoulou-Dodd, Associate Professor of Entrepreneurship and FCP Director, or Ms Erato Paraschaki, MBA Director, tel: +30 210 8964531.
