ABSTRACT
The theme and principal focal point of this paper is that management consulting does indeed offer considerable research opportunity to the professor-consultant. Historically, much research has emanated from the real-world environment to which consultants have access. Similar occasions for research are present now and will be in the future, especially for the professor-consultant.
