Advice from students – the process

Before starting a consulting project, there is an initial discussion about your requirements and the options for consulting. Consulting projects can be carried out in an individual framework by smaller teams or as part of semester-related project work in which the groups are larger. This project work has the character of an examination for the students.

Next, a project assignment is formulated that is helpful for the acquisition of the consulting team. Details of the team structure such as the desired field of study can also be conveyed. Then the consulting project begins with a kick-off meeting in which the representatives of the company to be advised present your project to the students. They develop a concept, which is then presented, discussed and decided in an interim presentation. In the last phase of the consultation by students, the concept is implemented and the actual consultation assignment is processed. The results are presented in a final presentation and documented in a project report.

The consulting project is accompanied by mentors, accompanied in e-commerce or online marketing projects e.g. Prof. Richard Geibel and Robin Kracht advise the students. This ensures a professional process and the quality of the results.

The Hochschule Fresenius has a great deal of experience in advising students. Here you will find a selection of consulting projects that have already been carried out. Customers included companies of all sizes and from many different industries.

You too can benefit from the advice of students for your company. It’s a new experience that is worth it.
