Host an MBA project

At the Full-time MBA, we source projects from partner companies each year:

The projects are often hosted by MBA alumni. One of the great benefits of alumni hosting a project is that they are familiar with the process and can provide relevant sparring and a good project scope. Alumni enjoy engaging with MBA students; some take a more mentoring approach to the role of hosting the project while others maintain the role of a potential client.

The Integrated Strategy Project

The Integrated Strategy Project (ISP) is a group project with 3-4 Full-time MBA students. It takes place between mid-April and mid-August. The project has to be of significant strategic value to the company in order to deliver on the following project phases:

  • Initial Analysis
  • Industry Analysis
  • Company Analysis
  • Issue Analysis
  • Final Recommendations

The company commits to supplying data for the project phases and to meet with the group throughout the project. At the end of the project, the results are presented to the relevant management team and/or board at the company.

How to apply

If you are interested in hosting an ISP, please contact Head of Programme Management Gitte Kramhøft Jakobsen on gkj.mba@cbs.dk. Projects are sourced throughout the year.
