Management Consulting (also called Strategy Consulting) involves the practice of helping organizations improve their performance, primarily through the analysis of existing business problems and development of plans for improvement. Management Consultants provide advice and strategy through a deep understanding of industry best practices. They offer assistance to organizations on change management, strategy development and operational improvements and other business issues.
Management Rotation Programs
Management Rotation Programs (sometimes called Leadership Development Programs) allow for a broad understanding of business with a focus on gaining skills and knowledge in the main functional areas (Finance, Marketing, Operations, etc.). Such programs provide breadth of knowledge within a single organization. Oftentimes there are multiple rotations in several functional areas or rotations in a single function, but across an organization's businesses. Programs vary by number and duration of rotations, and program structure and business need often dictate the length.
Corporate finance focuses on financial decisions made by a company to improve and maximize shareholder value while at the same time minimize risk. Managing a business¿s money, analyzing financial performance, assessing investment activities, improving revenue and cutting costs all fall under this umbrella.
Marketing affects every consumer purchasing decision, and a marketing background provides skills necessary to spend dollars and target audiences wisely. Goizueta's marketing faculty places a strong emphasis on marketing strategy with faculty research revolving around making rigorous conceptual and theoretical advances and empirically testing theories in the strategy area. All Goizueta marketing courses contain experiential learning exercises, including several "lab" courses that revolve around strategic marketing projects with outside firms. Goizueta is a leader among business schools in this real-world learning style. Several of our faculty members have received "best paper" awards for research published in the Journal of Marketing, the oldest and most cited scholarly journal, focusing on topics such as market structure, marketing strategy, and evolution of customer preference.
