I don't really know about that, but here is one interesting program at the Ashridge Business School:
------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Ashridge Masters in Organisation Consulting is a two-year part-time MSc programme developed by practising consultants to specifically address the unique challenges faced by consulting practitioners in increasingly complex and uncertain environments.

Now in its 10th year, AMOC provides a reputable qualification that enables consultants, change agents and facilitators the opportunity to learn new ways of consulting. Accessing the latest research in the field, combined with the experience of faculty and participants, AMOC synthesises practical approaches with theoretical insight.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Better yet, check out www.ashridge.org.uk

Hope that helps!

Hi,

Since there is practically no school that offers a master's degree in consulting (aside from my other post, which is Ashridge Business School - but it's designed for employed consultants, it's a part-time program), I suggest that, if you don't want an MBA, take up an M.S. in Operations Management. That's the nearest you can get to consulting..

I suggest the University of Rochester (Simon Graduate School of Business). They offer an MS in Business Administration - concentration in Service Management:
-------------------------------------------------------------
Concentration in Manufacturing Management or Service Management:

This M.S. degree with a concentration in Manufacturing Management or Service Management provides management training for individuals who wish to pursue a career in operations. The program can help operations managers and industrial or manufacturing engineers gain further expertise in operations management and stay current with the most recent developments in the field. Upon graduation, students who concentrate in Manufacturing Management are prepared to engage in a career managing the manufacturing function, as well as those supporting it in finance, accounting and marketing. Students who study Service Management are ready to pursue careers with line responsibilities or consulting, as well as in service-oriented industries such as finance and retailing.

The reason is that firms don't just say "we'll hire a consultant, he'll help us figure this out". Instead they say "we'll hire a tax consultant", or "...a M&A consultant", or "...an operations management consultant", and so on. So if you want to become a consultant, you should first figure out in what field you want to consult in, then figure out what it's about.

So if you want to become a consultant in operations management you should probably go into an MS operations management program such as the one proposed by eurospec. Otherwise, it doesn't make sense.

I agree... the MS in consulting seems way too broad and somewhat fishy. Go for something more specific that will convey your skillset.

Warwick Business School offers a MSc in Business Analytics and Consulting. The program seems pretty nice still not sure I'm going. Got a conditional offer - apparently GMAT 760 is not enough and now have to take GRE :(

You might consider a masters in management from a top tier institution or a masters in whatever particular field interests you and then try and get recruited. Consulting isn't really a single thing, people consult on everything from IT to strategy and other than being outsiders there isn't much similarity between the guy at McKinsey who is there to design strategy and the guy installing/implementing software.

I think Ms consulting has become common field.

What is your goal? To work in a consulting firm?

Go with the school/degree that has record of sending students off to consultancies after graduation. Not sure what you will learn with an MS in consulting since consulting can be strategy, finance, operations, HR, IT.. or it can be industry focused with Energy, Healthcare, Products, Communications, Banking.
