#In the Middle of Practice
From student to business management consultant
Applying theoretical knowledge from their studies in practice, directly at a company - management students from the ISM Hamburg campus got the chance to prove themselves. As part of a consulting workshop, they developed a new concept for the global company Philips. The task given to them was to develop a holistic concept that would position Philips as an innovative and attractive employer for graduates. The result was the so-called "Philips Flat": an online game in which you can furnish an apartment on the Internet with Philips products or even invent new ones.
