Work-integrated learning (WIL) subject formats are increasingly popular in business faculties around the world. This paper presents a program-level case study of a WIL design that has been adopted for management consulting; a subject that the scholarly literature has shown to be notoriously challenging to develop and teach. In a knowledge-sharing endeavor, this paper draws on syllabus materials and client and student feedback to outline how the teaching practices and work-integrated design of an undergraduate capstone subject – ‘Management Consulting’ – have mapped onto student learning outcomes.
