A proven approach yields actionable insights.
STAR teams follow the McKinsey Engagement’s TEAM FOCUS methodology to address your business challenge. They receive comprehensive training in this hypothesis-driven approach, systematic data gathering and effective teamwork. As a result, they craft exceptional recommendations for you. Students earn course credit for this intensive learning experience.

Confidentiality: STAR recognizes the importance of maintaining confidentiality of your project and data. To solidify the relationship with you, we enter into non-disclosure and service agreements.
STAR formats: With the exception of the in-person project Launch in Chapel Hill in January and, ideally, at least one visit by the student team to your location, you can engage with the team in person, completely virtual, or a mix of both. If your project requires the students to travel abroad, the team will do so in early May.
Timing: The entire project runs January to late April/early May with the formal project launch taking place all day on a Saturday in late January in Chapel Hill.
Program fee: The STAR fee ranges from $30,000 to $35,000 plus travel and research expenses, if needed (e.g., team travel to your location, access to a survey tool). A project that includes student travel abroad has a higher fee.
