StrategyLab

Created by BUCG in 2015, StrategyLab serves as consulting engagement simulation designed to evaluate and train members interested in joining our real world engagement teams.

The program entails a semester-long project where members are placed into teams and presented with a case prompt. Each team will work to create a solution to the problem. Guided by project leaders, participants will learn how to conduct market research, competitor profiling, and industry analysis.

 

At the end of the semester, students will prepare and present a solution to a “client” consisting of a panel of BUCG judges. Students will be evaluated on their solution as well as their approach. Based on performance throughout the semester participants may be selected to join our real world engagement teams. 

 

If selected, they will be placed in a team of four to five people to serve on a real-life consulting engagement. Typically, each project takes about three months and finishes at the end of each school semester. 

 

Consultants that show their keen interest, best effort, and leadership skills will get promoted to Engagement Managers. This position entails direct contact with clients, management of the team, and guiding it to the best solution for the involved company. 

Core Focus Areas:

  • Problem Solving in a Business Context

  • Leadership
