FSR | International Research Project

International Research Project

The International Research Project (IRP) committee organises one of the biggest events of FSR, a two-week consultancy trip to a far-away destination. The project takes place both in the Netherlands and abroad. In July 2024 the team of 20 students travels to an international destination to provide professional consultancy services to international companies. In previous years, interesting places such as Kuala Lumpur, Boston, Sao Paulo & Rio de Janeiro, Beijing, Mumbai, Delhi, and Santiago de Chile have been visited. 

Every year, the IRP offers tailor-made research to companies and organizations that are interested in getting valuable insights into their business in an international market. The IRP has 25 years of experience in performing research projects all over the world. The students have always delivered useful strategic advice to complex business challenges.

The research will be conducted by a selected group of 20 students, consisting of master students at the Erasmus University of Rotterdam (EUR). The strict selection of students will be guided by the strategy consultancy firm Bain & Company to guarantee that a team of top students with various backgrounds is formed. The selected group of students team will dedicate 6 months of their time in order to find the best possible solution for a strategic problem provided by a company. In the preparation phase, the IRP team will be consulting about the goals and wishes of the company-specific research. Through the diversity of the IRP team are they able to tackle a wide range of complex problems. The main focus of IRP is to provide the provision of realistic, refreshing, and valuable solutions to your organisation. In the previous years of IRP, student teams have carried out successful projects for companies within a wide range of sectors.

Furthermore, the project is supervised by strategy consultants of the well-known consultancy firms BCG and Roland Berger who also offer several lectures, workshops and training days for the participating students. This way the students are optimally prepared to provide the best strategic advice to your company.

In addition, information sessions will be held where you can ask all of your questions.
