Strategic Consulting Institute

The Mercy College MBA program believes that experiential learning is important to the overall MBA experience. A unique aspect of our program is the Strategic Consulting Institute (SCI).

  • All Graduate Business students are welcome to participate.

Participation in the SCI is entirely voluntary on the part of the student. Projects are performed under the advice of one or more faculty members who act as the Directing Partner for engagement. There are typically student teams of about six and engagements are performed in a highly professional manner, utilizing real-world consulting methodologies and last on average 8 - 12 weeks. Participation usually requires a commitment of 3 - 5 hours a week depending on the student's role in the project. Leadership consulting roles tend to require at least a five hour a week commitment.
