The course offers a mix of theoretical and practical elements. First, a series of lectures is dedicated to an exploration of various important themes that help you to better understand consulting and change. Typical topics one can think of are ?The consultant-client relationship?, ?The nature of the consultant?; ?Change management?; ?Resistance?; ?Management fashions? and ?The impact of management ideas?. A thorough understanding of these topics opens up opportunities for an engagement with the more practical elements of consulting and change and the chance to ?experience consulting and change?. Here you will be asked to draw on the themes and theories discussed during the lectures and to reflect on an actual consulting project. We also aim to include interactions with change managers and/or consultants, for instance by organizing company visits, experience a training day or set up discussion round tables and inspiring guest speakers.

In short, the course combines theoretically informed analytical rigour with practical relevance. This helps you academically but also gives you a glimpse of a top career choice for many BA/IBA graduates: consulting/change management!
