However good you are, there’s always room for improvement
Wise words – and we put them into practice. Maybe the real secret to our success is that our employees find change exciting; they love optimizing what’s already in place, and creating something new. And undoubtedly that attitude includes their approach to continual personal development. We offer plenty of opportunities whether through our structured knowledge management, in the training curriculum of Camp events, or through academic work as a part of an extra-occupational dissertation or (executive) MBA Studies.
Fun is also an essential element, of course, because we believe that humor helps us to overcome challenging project situations more successfully, and to reinforce team spirit. That’s why, as well as offering technical sessions, we also organize many events and formats to promote dialog and networking among our colleagues – in particular these include regular team meetings and joint activities within the project team.
If you would also like to benefit from daily development and become part of a unique business culture, you’ll find the right environment with us.
Our attractive, needs-based internal training programs ensure our staff are trained and qualified systematically. Here you can develop not only your methodological and social skills towards whatever specific targets you have, you can also continuously build up and expand your professional expertise and learn from experts.
At the beginning of your career, our internal curricula focus on basic training and broad-based professional expertise. As your career develops and you take on more responsibility, your qualification measures will be expanded to include leadership skills, acquisition abilities, and specialist fields of expertise.
It is expected of every consultant at Horváth & Partners to work continuously on their qualifications and skills. To this end, you will define an annual development plan with your mentor which covers internal and external training seminars to ensure you are always one step ahead in terms of expertise.
We think that is a wonderful perspective.
Horváth Business School
The core element of the internal curriculum is the two- to five-day Horváth & Partners Business School, which takes place once a year.
This forms the basis for consolidating specialized technical expertise. The elements of further development covered are based on the respective consultants’ level of experience, ensuring that participants are able to successfully master daily challenges in a dynamic environment.
The Horváth Business School is the ideal way to experience continuous further development through extensive training options, as well as to network with a wide-ranging peer group in your company.
We are conscious that every employee has a specific set of duties with us, and we want to train and promote them to fulfill their role to the best possible ability.
Your thirst for knowledge is insatiable? Then it is good that we offer you numerous opportunities to quench it with goal-oriented training opportunities: Once a year, the Horváth & Partners Camp offers all staff the opportunity to exchange knowledge, teach one another and learn from external experts while spending several days at an exclusive stay abroad. The topics focused on at the Camp include the consulting fields of Horváth & Partners, the exchange of experiences from projects, and issues on developing in the areas of social and intercultural skills. The Camp is also – and we feel this is very important – a place where you can keep in touch and catch up with colleagues on a regular basis.
Just how important we think your individual skills and your long-term development are can be seen in the fact that we will also support your ongoing academic qualification. As part of our scholarship program we sponsor consultants in their PhDs, their MBA programs or in the completion of other business- or economy-related masters studies.
As our roots lie in academia, Horváth & Partners have numerous contacts to the academic world. The exchange of information and above all ideas with university research institutions – also at international level – is something our clients value very highly indeed. You can also develop yourself academically: We will gladly supply you with the necessary contacts to universities, departments and professors. There is also another positive side to this: By successfully acquiring a further academic qualification, you will raise the company’s power to innovate by developing methods or even opening up new topics and fields.
And what would all that preciously acquired knowledge be worth if you didn’t pass it on to others? It is a tradition at Horváth & Partners that consultants publish on their specialist fields in journals and books, as well as give presentations at congresses, symposiums and university events.
