Dive Into the New Age of Student Empowerment
Thematic Semester Course
The following thematic lecture series could be delivered in form of credit-bearing courses or semester-long faculty or club activities. There are three themes available:
These thematic series aim to inspire students with real business cases and updated market information, empower them to create and present innovative ideas, and help them in developing a strategic mindset. As the nature of the themes are drastically different, students can take all three courses concurrently with no duplicating content.
Each lecture is expected to be 3-hour. Adjustments to curricula would be made if the class time is reduced or extended.
This consulting experience is designed to provide students an unparalleled experience in advising client companies with their skills and expertise. Our trainers will act as the Engagement Managers and the points of contact for the client companies. All sessions are highly interactive in consistent with the norm in the consulting industry. Students will experience consulting in an environment protected by Stargazers. At the end of the training programme, students would be able to communicate confidently with business clients and develop feasible solutions with respect to the constraints in the real world. These would set the foundations for their career development.
With the unique nature where external companies are involved, Stargazers team will actively assist the consulting teams for quality assurance. Pre-onboarding and reporting services are also included in this service package.
Business Case Competition Team
Participation in competitions provides students with unparalleled learning opportunities and honours to the school both from a local and a global perspective.

Stargazers Consulting is experienced in organizing and coaching school team members with the following provisions:
Recruitment: Pre-interview workshop, screening and interviews
