Consulting 101

January 25, 2013
Faculty Lead - Brendan Boler

In years past, the Center has presented many wonderful panels focused on careers in consulting. This year's Consulting 101 session, in addition to a panel of experts from a variety consulting companies eager to share their experiences, included a complete workshop designed to provide students with a better understanding of what to expect from a career in consulting and to help them prepare to enter that field. 

Case Interview Workshop

Most management consulting firms incorporate some form of a case interview into their interview process. This can be daunting for students who are not familiar or comfortable with the practice. This workshop provided an overview of what case interviewing is, showed how students can drill and practice before the start of the interview season, and actually ran through an interactive case interview in real time.
