The End

It’s hard to believe that the project has come to an end. The long hours of work and endless revisions were all worth it after our final presentation. As we wrap up the semester, I began to reflect on my professional and personal development as well as all the new knowledge I have acquired from…

Auf Wiedersehen Deutschland!

With the project all wrapped up, there have been so many takeaways that will be applicable to the remainder of my college and professional career. The three biggest lessons I gained from working with Possehl were perseverance, morale, and critical thinking. As opposed to previous projects I’ve worked on, collaboration with the client was not…

Concluding Our Consulting Project

The most important lesson I learned throughout this experience is the difference between high context business relationships and low context business relationships.  We learned in our class that high context business relationships mean that people think it is important to establish a relationship and a deeper level of trust before / while conducting business.  This…

Wrapping Up the Germany Project!

It’s crazy to think that this program is already over, it feels like just yesterday we met our client for the first time. This program has been one of the most beneficial experiences that I have had as a Pitt Business student thus far. Being able to gain real-world experience while collaborating with highly motivated…

While participating in this program was certainly not an…

What are the key lessons that you learned throughout the experience? Working with new people will always bring new experiences. As did this international consulting project. One thing I love about working in groups is getting to know the members of the team and your clients and their way of working. I have met so…

Un-boli-vable Experience – CEOLI

Through this experience, one of the key lessons that I learned is the importance of clarity and cultural awareness in any type of client interaction. I think a big reason why my team can successfully conduct work towards our deliverables is because we spent a lot of time trying to clarify our scope of work…

¡Hasta Próxima!

It’s hard to believe that our semester and time with CEOLI has drawn to a close. Despite our virtual-only contact, we found that we were able to enjoy a relationship with the client, getting to know them more with each meeting. This has resulted in a bittersweet goodbye, as it is both calming and sad…

El Fin

It seems this virtual journey is coming to a bittersweet end. Bitter to see it end with how fast it went by, but sweet to see all that we’ve accomplished, in my group as well as the rest of the groups. As I reflect on my time in this program, I realize just how much…
