Consulting Projects Take Tuck School of Business Students around the Globe

GlobesMBA students at the Tuck School of Business have been putting what they learn in the classroom to work in the field as part of a global onsite consulting program that debuted in 1997. To date, they have completed more than 194 projects in more than 50 countries, the school reports.

The program, called Tuck OnSite Global Consulting, or OnSite for short, is available as an elective to second-year MBA students. As part of the experiential learning opportunity, MBAs hone their skills by providing professional quality consulting services to worldwide clients. The clients benefit, too – OnSite provides a cost-effective solution for corporations, nonprofits and governments for which time, money or manpower is in short supply.

Teams of Tuck students carry out the consulting projects under the supervision of advisors, all of whom have extensive consulting and project management experience. OnSite is immersive, full-time work outside of the United States. This final factor means that it helps MBAs not only become better consultants, but also learn their way around in new business environments, countries and cultures.

Tuck devoted a recent blog post to student entries sharing their experiences as part of seven OnSite projects over last Winter Break. Among the sites students traveled to were Tokyo, Shanghai, Addis Ababa, Beijing, Montevideo and London.
