Applied Business Consulting course an opportunity to earn credit by consulting with real businesses

July 9, 2024 — 
The business world doesn’t follow a syllabus. Assignments change with client needs, and a consultant’s success is measured not by a grade, but by their ability to uncover, understand and respond to those needs. Students learn this firsthand in the Asper School of Business’ unique experiential learning course, IDM 4050: Applied Business Consulting. While students are supported by their classroom learning—a thorough study of business theory and practice in their BComm—IDM 4050 challenges them to think about how they will use this knowledge to manage client relationships consult real businesses and not-for-profits.
