What is the Erasmus Consultancy Project?

The Erasmus Consultancy Project (ECP) is a project of STAR, the study association of Rotterdam School of Management (RSM), Erasmus University. Every year, the ECP offers companies and non-profit organizations tailor-made research and consultancy services in an emerging market at cost price. The ECP  is carried out by approximately 25 carefully selected students of Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University. Two professors are involved to guide the quality of the project. RSM is ranked in the top 10 of the Financial Times European Business Schools ranking. Here, you can read more about our team.

What can we do for you?

The project adds substantial value due to the combination of desk and field research. The project starts with desk research, after which we will travel to Colombia for 3 weeks to perform field research. This results in well-rounded and in-depth advice for companies aimed at creating a sustainable competitive advantage. Moreover, our values and philosophy contribute to a high societal awareness. Previously, the ECP has successfully completed 31 projects in countries such as China, Mexico, India, the Republic of Korea, Vietnam, Brazil, Thailand and Chile. This year, the destination is Colombia. Find out why we chose Colombia!

The ECP is a unique project and has gained extensive experience over the past 31 years. Besides this, it has built an extensive network of professionals and professors to rely on. The ECP focuses on creating value for its clients as well as on establishing a professional collaboration: we aim to establish a solid relationship with clients based on good communication and mutual understanding to provide the best services possible. Furthermore, our consultants are highly motivated business students dedicated to deliver practical and sustainable results; they are keen on helping your organization learn and develop itself.

Our mission is:
• To foster the development of your company
• To challenge ourselves in order to provide clients with results of the highest quality
• To combine the strengths of our diverse consultants in order to provide you with the best research and services available
• To maintain high academic research levels, supported by Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University
