What should you consider when choosing your occupation as a university graduate? And what does a typical work week in consultancy look like? What distinguishes a medium-sized owner-run consultancy business from the Big Five? These and more questions were the focus of the one-hour presentation by Q_PERIOR at the St. Gallen University, which was held within the framework of this year’s HSG Talent Conference on the campus of the renowned university. Thereafter, quite a few participants – mainly business administration students – took the opportunity to ask own questions in a one-on-one meeting with the Q_PERIOR employees (from management, recruiting to consultancy).
“Management in Practice” is the name of the module of the Department of Business Economics at the Bern University of Applied Sciences. A second guest presentation was held by Q_PERIOR in this context. In addition to an orientation on starting a career in consultancy, the focus here was on project management methods and their implementation in practice. The students were provided with a descriptive insight into practical life in consultancy businesses, e.g. consultancy at customers’ premises: From project acquisition, quotation, to project planning and management.
The overall feedback from both events was that the company and its representatives came across as authentic and did not present a glossy magazine image.
