Strategy& - Business Course - Walk the Talk

Experience Walk the Talk: Paris

On Tuesday May 23rd, we will set off for Paris: the capital of romance, fashion ánd the landmark Paris climate agreement. During our stay in Paris, you will help an athletic footwear company rethink their value chain in order to maximize efficiency and minimize environmental impact. Working on this exciting case will allow you to show off your strong analytical skills and familiarize yourself with the way strategy consultants work. But needless to say, there will also be plenty of time to get to know our consultants while enjoying the beautiful city of Paris! On Thursday afternoon, we will head back to Amsterdam to give you a chance to meet the rest of our Amsterdam office and catch a glimpse of our open company culture. On Friday you will finalize your advice for our client and present your results to a panel of industry experts. The business course will end on Friday afternoon.

At Strategy&, our consultant’s personal development is of the highest priority. Throughout the business course you will receive a large deal of training and coaching by our experienced consultants, including feedback sessions that can help you identify your own strengths and development areas.

We are looking for talented Master’s students and 3rd year Bachelor students from all academic backgrounds and universities.
