Example project you may work on
Your client is a global philanthropic organisation. For decades, they have invested millions of dollars in literacy projects across Africa. There has been a change of leadership at the charity, and they are looking to refresh their strategy. Working in groups, your task is to help them develop their overall and issue area-specific theory of change and theory of action, and design a new strategy for how they spend their money. Part of this new strategy requires a focus on effective governance and evaluation of impact.
The course matters because the world and it’s problems are becoming increasingly complex. We need smart people to solve those problems - people with an advanced problem-solving toolkit. That is exactly what we will teach in this program. The whole time, students will be supported by the iX teaching team.
iX Pre-Semester is an intensive learning experience designed to help you start Fall with serious momemtum, ahead of recruiting season.
For the first week, you'll focus primarily on picking up new industry-relevant skills at a rapid pace. The second week, following a weekend break, will focus primarily on applying your skills to a real world project that you can add to your resume and discuss in job interviews.
Unlike many other online programs, you'll have support from your teachers and teaching assistants throughout the day so you're never stuck on a problem for too long.
"iXperience was a one-of-a-kind learning immersion. I gained experience and knowledge in ways I never had before. I can now say that I have incredible new skills and have used what I learned to make an impact at a startup company in Cape Town."
This program has been one of the best experience's of my life. I'm fortunate to have been a part of a fun, helpful community that taught me so much in such a short span of time. I highly recommend the Management Consulting course for anyone who wants learn how to be an effective team member at any organization.
From performing market analyses using Porter’s Five Forces, to understanding how we are positioned within the market using STP mapping, to developing dynamic financial models, the consulting course has prepared me to address a wide range of business problems with confidence.
For consulting we had to to be able to analyze data like a data scientist, create a PowerPoint deck like a designer, do excel modeling like a broker. For me, this aspect of the course, in addition to an awesome instructor and TAs, makes every class so enjoyable.
Our teacher, Anton, created a dynamic that really inspired me to perform and to squeeze every bit of learning and enjoyment out of this course - our final project wouldn't have been the same without his drive.
The class has definitely pushed me out of my comfort zone, but in a good way. I have worked with many different people who come from different backgrounds and experience levels.
Pre-Semester Spring 2022 dates will be announced soon. The program will take place over the winter break period.
