Workshop Day

At the IKOM Consulting Day, you can get to know four innovative consultancies in a relaxed atmosphere while solving captivating case studies with other students from TUM.

You will have the possibility to attend two workshops from different companies which offer insight into the everyday life of a consultant or give valuable advice for your application. The other two consulting companies will be there for you during the breaks (Kaffee & Kuchen Time!) and after the workshops, so ask away!

The IKOM Consulting Day is a free offer by IKOM where each of the participating consultancies prepares an individual workshop tailored to their work and sector of interest. You will have the chance to spend a day at a congress hotel and to participate in two different workshops, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. In between the workshops, during coffee breaks and lunch, and at the end of the day, there is ample time to talk freely with the companies‘ representatives and to network.

Application is open to students from the 3rd semester onwards, as well as Ph.D. students.
All fields of study are welcome!

Eye drops for the treatment of myopia – Developing a successful launch strategy for "All-clear eye drops"


Getting the launch strategy of a new product right is of utmost importance for companies in the healthcare industry. Accordingly, it requires a thorough understanding of the competitive landscape and careful evaluation of the market potential from multiple perspectives to define the right price tag and product positioning strategy. Furthermore, in defining the right strategy, perspectives from multiple stakeholders have to be considered, ranging from patients and physicians to sick funds and regulatory authorities. 

In the upcoming event, we will work with you to develop a launch strategy for an innovative medicine treating a widespread eye disorder (myopia, i.e. short-sightedness)! Note that no previous experience in the Healthcare/Life Science industry is required. 

Each group will be accompanied by two of our experienced consultants and will later present their results and specific recommendations.

  • How to build a calculation tree, the foundation for approaching technical questions 
  • How to make assumptions based on real-world data

Throughout, you’ll be coached by some of our current consultants. This includes those who have created market sizing exercises and those who run market sizing interviews. There will be an opportunity for Q&A at the end, and much of the workshop will involve group work.
