About the Erasmus Consultancy Project (ECP)
The Erasmus Consultancy Project (ECP) dates back over thirty years and is the oldest in its kind. The ECP is connected to STAR, the official faculty association of the Rotterdam School of Management, which is one of the leading business schools in Europe.
In 1986, we started with the Project Committee investigating Thailand, Singapore and Indonesia. Research in countries such as China, India, Malaysia, Mexico and Vietnam followed before the project was renamed to European Business Study (EBS) in 1993. From then on, the focus was on European upcoming economies like Ukraine, Turkey, Poland and Saint Petersburg. This changed in the year 1997 when the scope became global again; accordingly, the name of the project changed to the International Business Study (IBS).
In September 2016 we recruited 22 consultants. During the fall we have been conducting general research into the Colombian market aimed at gaining the appropriate insights. We did this in order to provide companies with in-depth research regarding promising sectors, industries and markets. Subsequently, we will dedicate ourselves to conducting desk research in order to focus on company specific opportunities.
In July 2017, we will set off to Colombia to conduct three weeks of field research. Here, we will gain relevant information and insights that can only be acquired through meetings with local companies and governmental institutions. By being in contact with the local community we can provide you with the most relevant information and find interesting contacts for your company.
In September 2017, the report for your company will be finalized and we will offer you our findings and recommendations.
