BUSI1807 Business Consulting Practicum

  • This is a 6-credit experiential learning course (a free-elective course for students in the HKU Business School) in the summer.

  • We aim to offer students the hands-on experience of working with business clients in solving “real-life” problems related to their studies. Students who have completed the practicum will gain valuable business experience to complement their academic learning and enhance their employability.

  • Students will participate as teams of independent consultants, under the guidance of the faculty teacher, Consultant-in-Residence and professional mentors, to work on real-life projects such as feasibility studies, business plans, market research, branding strategies, accounting and information systems design and implementation, etc.

  • Business clients will be mostly, if not all, small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and social enterprises in Hong Kong. Students will interact with the executives or owners of these enterprises while providing a free business consulting service to them.
