My first 602 intake

schulichI’ve spent the last couple of  hours preparing for my first 602 intake.  If you’re reading this and you’re not familiar with the 602, it’s probably because you’re not a Schulich MBA or IMBA student.  The 602 is an eight to ten month strategic consulting project that groups of Schulich MBA students engage in as part of their degree requirements.  Our group is still searching for a client site, and since we’re International MBA students, we’ve been focusing on our chosen region – Latin America.  Although we’ve had a couple of good prospects, nothing’s been secured yet.  Tomorrow I have a meeting with a Colombian company to assess whether they would be a good fit for our 602 project.  I’m a little nervous as it will be my first real consulting “intake”, on my own, in a foreign language, with no industry experience to rely on.  I’ve been preparing an agenda and reading up on the industry, but it looks like it’ll come down to me just jumping in with both feet and see what comes of it!  Wish me luck ;)
