Here’s how the Fletcher Course Bulletin describes it:
EIB B237: Field Studies in Global Consulting
The goal of this course is to provide an introduction to consulting as it is practiced worldwide and across sectors. Students will achieve this goal by undertaking a consulting engagement for a real-world client. The first part of the course will include an introduction to and practice in the essential skills that form the core of professional development for consultants at top level firms. Students will then put these skills to the test by completing a team consulting project for a sponsoring company.
And this website gives a nice picture of how the course plays out for the students and companies that participate. It’s a particularly challenging class for students, who pretty much need to clear their schedules to make time for the teamwork and travel that each project may involve, but the opportunity for genuine hands-on practical experience also makes the class very popular each spring.
