the wait for the 2013 UEFA Champions League final is nearly over, with Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich two German Bundesliga teams set to square off for the title in Wembley on May 25.
This is the first time that two German clubs have reached the UEFA Champions League final. And both of them have a special link to Roland Berger Strategy Consultants. First of all, Munich is the „headquarter“ not only from the famous FC Bayern Munich, but also from Roland Berger Strategy Consultants.

With the recovery plan put together by Roland Berger, Borussia Dortmund went on to revive itself and win the Bundesliga championship in 2011 and 2012.
