Management Consulting is the perfect career for anyone with intellectual smarts and analytical ability craving exposure to different industries before deciding their final career path – though for some, consulting is that path. People moving out of MC are in great demand in industries such as finance and banking, and are well-placed to become leaders in most organizational fields
Includes industry insights, a detailed course and program outline, and more.
Note that our partner companies and projects may change from year to year.
As with most industries, the fourth industrial revolution will require that Management Consultants adapt to various environments and situations rapidly. Good consultants will need to learn how to learn and problem solve much faster in situations that are new and unfamiliar to their clients and the firms that employ them.
From performing market analyses using Porter’s Five Forces, to understanding how we are positioned within the market using STP mapping, to developing dynamic financial models, the consulting course has prepared me to address a wide range of business problems, if not all, with confidence.
Accenture meant getting into the office at 9am and doing some research on a current issue and our client, then we would prepare for meetings/presentations with our manager. What I enjoy most about my internship is that I feel like I am actually working on a real project.
For consulting we had to to be able to analyze data like a data scientist, create a PowerPoint deck like a designer, do excel modeling like a broker. For me, this aspect of the course, in addition to an awesome instructor and TAs, makes every class so enjoyable.
Our teacher, Anton, created a dynamic that really inspired me to perform and to squeeze every bit of learning and enjoyment out of this course - our final project wouldn't have been the same without his drive.
The class has definitely pushed me out of my comfort zone, but in a good way. I have worked with many different people who come from different backgrounds and experience levels.
