Company Consultancy Projects

# what is a company consultancy project?

Our Company Consultancy Projects (CCP) put classroom knowledge into practice.

The CCPs  at ESCP Berlin are an opportunity for companies and organisations to receive new solutions by advanced graduate and MBA students.

A CCP allows students to apply their skills and gain insights into various industries and fields within a practical environment.

# your benefits

Your company or organisation benefit from lively exchanges with students, their structured research approach, creativity and fresh mindset. 

Students use Company Consultancy Projects (CCP) to work content-wise with practitioners on real challenges.


From ESCP Berlin

Clients will be accompanied throughout the entire project cycle by the CCP Project Manager.

Students stay in contact with ESCP staff throughout the project and receive advice in client interaction, group dynamics and content-wise questions.



Clients  will get a  student team that will tackle their challenge with creativity and a fresh mindset.

Students  have the chance to bring in their knowledge and own ideas.



For companies and organisations a CCP is a platform on which they can work content-wise with students.

Students  broaden their knowledge through a practical experience.


Research & Approach

Practitioners get the newest insights into academia and higher education from MBA students and graduate students in our Sales, Sustainability, Entrepreneurship, Food & Beverage and Strategy & Digital Business programmes.

Students can apply their research skills and problem-solving approaches acquired in their classes to an actual challenge.


Recruitment Tool

A CCP is an alternative tool for companies to assess potential employees based on their performance and motivation.

Students hone their skills and have the opportunity to explore professional environments.
