Drexel CCI Undergraduate Kickstarts Career in Consulting in LeBow International Consulting Residency Course February 12, 2018 College of Computing & Informatics undergraduate student Anthony Silvestri ’18 was one of eighteen Drexel University students who traveled to Amsterdam, The Netherlands and Brussels, Belgium in December 2017 to conclude an experiential learning highlight of their Drexel experience. The students participated in the LeBow College of Business’ international consulting residency course, which combines a project-based consulting class and international travel. Throughout the quarter, students interacted virtually with their client, BlueCielo ECM Solutions, leading global provider of software solutions to monitor and control asset information throughout the asset lifecycle. Company team members from around the globe interfaced with the students, who were tasked with developing recommendations for business challenges at the organization. Headquartered in Hoofdorp, Netherlands, just outside of Amsterdam, the company welcomed Drexel’s students to present business solutions during their one-week trip abroad. Silvestri enjoyed the experience so much that he participated in the program twice, taking part in the prior year’s course in which students consulted for a startup in Prague, Czech Republic. “Working with a team of individuals from various backgrounds to develop integrated solutions for our client, I have developed skills that will benefit me after graduation as I begin a career in consulting,” Silvestri explains. “The unique learning experience of this course is the reason I decided to take the course again this year.” Click here to visit Drexel LeBow’s website to read more LeBow’s international consulting residency course series will continue in London and Geneva in summer 2018, where students will work in groups to develop a marketing campaign, spread brand awareness, and use analytics to increase website traffic and online sales for SEP Jordan, a social-impact fashion design company.
