The Schulich School of Business offers a range of analytical, research and consulting services to business. These services can include a few hours of ad hoc analysis through to researching and creating a long-term strategy for organizations. Services are provided by undergraduate iBBA/BBA or graduate IMBA/MBA students, and supervised by Schulich’s professors.

Projects connected to a particular course or area of study can be done at little or no cost to the client, but must be proposed and accepted some weeks before the start of a school term (September, January or May) and will follow the academic time frame. Projects not directly connected to courses are more flexible, but require compensation for the student consultants involved and recovery of costs.

Use Schulich’s Centre for Global Enterprise as your guide. Launched in 2013, the Centre for Global Enterprise can help you navigate the various services and programs offered at Schulich, as well as other organizations offering support for SMEs. We can make introductions and through our research activities, events, and partnerships, help prepare you and your organization for a successful international venture.

(1) Want to succeed in markets outside of North America but lack the knowledge, network, or resources?

Each year the Global Leadership Program (GLP) helps Canadian companies looking for a strategy to gain entry into a foreign market. A select group of Schulich MBA students under the supervision of the School’s experienced faculty are matched with another group of MBA students from one of our partner institutions in the target market or country to develop a tailored market entry strategy for the candidate company.
