This course counts toward the following majors: Management & Organizations.
In this course, students discover what it takes to be an effective and successful professional, leading up to crafting a personal plan to kick-start his or her career. The class, which explores many of the topics executives face in a broad spectrum of leading institutions, is designed primarily for students who plan to join professional service firms, although it provides valuable insights for anyone who will engage with service firms in their careers. It is built around two modules: the first deals with common issues across professional service firms such as knowledge management, people management and the concept of “trusted adviser.” The second module explores differences in the context of these institutions, specifically consulting, private equity, asset management and talent management. The format is designed to identify implications for the individual student, building on case discussions and personal reflections of leaders (CEOs or senior executives) of prominent institutions who will be present for parts of each class.
