Course Preparation for Management Consultants
Adams, Susan M.; Zanzi, Alberto
Journal of Management Education, v28 n6 p655-673 2004
The explosive growth of the consulting industry in recent years and the controversy surrounding the quality of the consulting function stresses the needs for a better preparation and training of consultants. This article examines the contribution that academia can provide in furthering the development of consultants at different stages in their careers. The research indicates a scarcity of academic course offerings and a lack of comprehensive coverage of essential course elements such as client-based field projects. A template is provided to address the curricular deficiencies detected in the survey of current course offerings. (Contains 3 tables and 1 figure.)
