Each year, a team of twenty MBA students are selected to manage the Savage Global Consulting program, which is an experiential learning endeavor reserved for handpicked graduate students in global supply chain management. These students receive intensified mentoring leading to a super-charged learning experience over the course of a calendar year, with phases that emphasize portions of the learn-do-become objectives.
Accepted students join the Savage Global Consulting program by enrolling in a graduate supply chain course. This course studies supply chain problems involving carefully selected target (CST) companies and brings executives into the classroom to share cases and experiences with students. The course also involves mentoring by second-year MBA students who completed the Savage Global Consulting Program the prior semester.
Savage Global Consulting will be required to participate in the Global Immersion Program (GIP) which may involve eight sessions of Introduction to International Business training followed by a two-week expedition studying the supply chain of a CST company. The GIP allows students to see firsthand the complexity and nuance of global supply chains.
Historically, participation in the Savage Global Consulting program has been helpful in obtaining positions in global supply chain management and consulting firms but is also a useful experience for students interested in this field.
