How can business, civil society and public institutions work together? What impact can each of us make? On Thursday, 11th January 2018 we will welcome more than 40 experts on campus, who will share their expertise together with students to find potential solutions for these questions. Based on design thinking methods, the workshop participants will craft an idea how their UN Sustainable Development Goal can be reached. The workshops will be moderated by our fabulous student team.

Application Training

The Workshop is based on the three big topics regarding the application process:

The first part of the training focuses on self-marketing and how to define the personal goal of the application.

As second part the participants learn how to setup their own cover letter and CV (please bring your own CV with you!) considering a recruiter’s point of view. After this theoretical section, they practice screening of applications in small groups.

The third part of the workshop is the training of the job interview including self-introduction, typical (stress causing/knowledge testing) questions and its general structure.
Altogether applicants should be encouraged to reflect on themselves and the CV with regard to a company's point of view.

Design Thinking (All-Day)

You want to find out how and why creative practices are applied to Consulting? Then apply for our Design Thinking Workshop! Get involved with our real-life case and playfully learn in a relaxed setting from our consultants how Design Thinking works at one of the largest consulting firms in the world.

Fast Forward scenario planning (Half-Day)

Fast forward is a tool for rapid-fire scenario creation. As with most scenario work, it is particularly useful for generating and framing conversations in situations of high uncertainty and complexity. While not a full-blown scenario development process, fast forward was designed to specifically enable groups to arrive at meaningful scenario sketches with a minimal time investment.


Currently around 1 trillion USD are planned globally in airport capacity expansion projects. Still industry and political representatives repeatedly emphasize that there is an upcoming infrastructure crisis due to lack of airport handling capacity in many countries. Therefore, investments in global airport expansion and construction remain strong.

With increasing numbers of passengers and aircraft movements in the worldwide air traffic, airport constructions are required to commence and finish at a fast pace. Due to the large scale and high complexity, airport construction projects are exposed to a large number of risks that may affect schedule, cost and scope but can also affect operations, safety and security. These various internal and external project risk factors may occur in or across the various construction stages.

In the M2P Consulting workshop, you will learn how to conduct a structured approach to construction project risk assessment, methodically as well as conceptually. You will learn which different risks to consider and how to categorize, evaluate and manage these based on deep industrial and functional insights. You will be guided by an knowledgeable Manager with several years of international top level consulting experience. To give you the real feel, the workshop is based on an actual project.
