Consultants provide students with an insight into professional practice
In March, Q_PERIOR visited two universities: Within the framework of the HSG Talents Conference and at the Bern University of Applied Sciences, our consultants will explain their occupation and daily work life in a little more detail.
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).

Practical implementation of scientific theories
“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.
