BUSINESS PRACTICE

At Hochschule Fresenius, master students of Digital Management (M.A.) become consultants for one semester, working in teams on a real and current case from business practice. Until January, student teams will work independently on their cases, coordinate their work with their corporate contacts, conduct interviews and external analyses, and finally bring everything together in a solution concept.

This semester’s projects focus on vertical market and competition analyses, the analysis of existing business models and the transfer into new digital business concepts, innovation culture, and transformation programs.

INSIGHTS

“The insights students gained from the presentations and discussions with Marijo Sarac and Jan Lengfeld were very authentic and clear in what the corporate partners expect from the teams and projects outcomes. From now on, teams will start their structure and project work as independent consultants,” says Prof. Dr. Christian Lengfeld, Professor of Management and International Management, who is supervising the projects on a weekly basis.
