Employer Engagement or Development Offices can apply the BE-EDGE method as a pathway for engaging industry partners as hosting clients, sponsors, or judges for the Consulting Case Writing Competition.
By hosting clients, employers receive a personalized company case story and consulting report. Most importantly, being a host allows them to select and verify graduating students and alumna as potential hires based on their soft skills of communication, sensitivity to the company’s context, capability to generate value, and overall fit to the company.
Finally, industry partners can serve as industry-, theme-, or a brand-related sponsors. The BE-EDGE method will allow partners to enjoy multiple views on solving the challenge of their interest and promote their company for a pool of proactive and career ready graduates.
