The Copenhagen Full-time MBA
Integrated Strategy Project
Apply your new skills to real life
Working in small teams, under the guidance of faculty members and experienced executives, you will conduct an Integrated Strategy Project (ISP), for an internationally oriented company based in the region. The project will test your ability to use relevant theories, models and methods and apply them to form a strategy. You will identify a strategic issue in an organisation, extract the relevant data, analyse and structure the problem and then present the solution in a brief and precise manner for the company you work with.
Review and reflect to improve performance
Each ISP team will be allocated an external and internal supervisor with whom they will meet periodically throughout the four months of the project. The ISP culminates in a group thesis, an individual oral defence of the thesis, and a group presentation to both the company and the examiner.
There a many valuable takeaways from the ISP experience, including the chance to work on a real strategic challenge, understanding of how various theories and frameworks work in practice, and the ability to put into operation various takeaways from LDP.
