The International Consultancy Project (ICP) offers students the possibility to develop leadership skills and put theory into practice while gaining international experience during a trip where they conduct market research. Each year, six consultancy companies are created and participate in this project, each deciding on its own research destination and hence distinguishing ICP from other research projects. Within a diverse team, students get the chance to go to an exciting destination during the summer for 3 to 6 weeks to conduct high-end research.
The ICP Committee consists of six members each responsible for one of the research teams when traveling abroad. Among previous destinations were Australia, India, China, Vietnam, Canada, Turkey, Brazil and the USA. Altogether, the main tasks of the ICP Committee include the promotion of the ICP, the successful acquisition of the projects and the preparation and execution of the different researches. Besides that, the committee also is in charge of the recruitment and selection of the participants (November - December), as well as organizing an ICP weekend for all participants.
Please note that a personal fee applies to cover part of the travel expenses.
