According to Coburg Consultants Ltd. change is the foundation of good business. Incorporated in 1982, the core group of contract consultants changes annually, but don't fret as this is mostly due to the fact that the company is operated by senior Dalhousie MBA students who sell before they toss their caps at their spring graduation. This year's ambitious Coburg Consultants Ltd. line up is comprised of Wesley Furrow, Douglas MacLennan, Kert Michaelson and Ryan Wong.
“Many of our fellow students about to graduate are facing the challenge of finding work that meets their qualifications in an increasingly competitive job market,” Michaelson explains. “Running Coburg gives us the opportunity to serve the business community while gaining a competitive edge.”
Coburg Consultants can be beneficial at all levels, everywhere from developing a business plan, to marketing research and environmental analysis. This hands-on approach to learning is beneficial both to the community and the students. It provides opportunity for the fresh academic movers and shakers who acquire the ability to take their education from inside the classroom out into the real world.
