Here is a quick re-cap of the event details:

We are excited to announce a new partnership with Business Analytics Bootcamp (B.A.B). Starting this summer, we will be working with B.A.B to offer exclusive info sessions and workshops to help you:

  • Understand what Business Analytics is and how it impacts consulting and other industries
  • Increase immediate career potential by acquiring in-demand skillsets through case-based workshops

Analytics has become an in-demand skillsets in many industries, especially management consulting. Many firms, such as BCG, McKinsey, Deloitte, have created new teams to bring Analytics into traditional engagements. In recent years, these firms started hiring and investing aggressively for hybrid talents, who are savvy in both business and technical analytics.

Here are some observations and examples:

  • BCG Gamma, McKinsey Analytics, and Deloitte’s Strategic Analytics & Modelling are among the highest growing teams by headcount
  • Active acquisition of analytics firms in recent years, such as McKinsey acquired QuantumBlack and BCG bought stakes in TSG Consulting
  • About 70% of the most-read publications among top firms last year were Analytics related
  • “You will be a formidable strategy consultant (or business professional) if you can understand both strategy and handle technical analytics … when we hire people today, we look for people who can code, not just in Excel, but databases and machine learning to enhance our strategy study.” – Michael Boricki, ex-BCG Partner

In collaboration with the Business Analytics Bootcamp, we are inviting you to the following events on U of T campus:

  • Info Session on Business Analytics in Consulting + Networking: 6pm-8pm, June 29th, MSB2170 (Free to attend)
    • What is Business Analytics?
    • What was my journey into Consulting and Analytics?

Sincerely,

Graduate Management Consulting Association (GMCA)
University of Toronto


Dear PhD, Postdoctoral, MD, and JD students,

I hope you are having a productive semester! As a graduate student, it was about this time of year that I found myself thinking about what life after the PhD might look like.

My name is Raminder Gill and I am a McGill graduate (PhD – Pharmacology, 2015) and a Consultant with The Boston Consulting Group. Since I recently made the transition from academia to consulting, I’d like to share my experience and answer some common questions that advanced degree candidates (PhDs, MDs, or JDs) have about consulting and BCG in particular.

INTERESTED IN MANAGEMENT CONSULTING?

The Boston Consulting Group is a global management consulting firm and the world’s leading advisor on business strategy. We partner with clients from the private, public, and not-for-profit sectors in all regions to identify their highest-value opportunities, address their most critical challenges, and transform their enterprises.

What do consultants actually do?
I’m responsible for owning a piece of our client’s problem. As an example, I recently helped a major Pharma company craft their strategy for commercializing a new technology. My role was to understand what capabilities they needed in order to win in this market.

Just a couple of weeks ago, I flew to Chicago to meet with the head of new products to deliver our strategy with the team. He’s excited to get working on how they should structure the new business in their existing organization.

After the meeting, we took the clients for dinner at a locally renowned restaurant, and followed up with a basketball game!

What does BCG look for?
Strong candidates are smart, capable, and possess strong leaderships skills.  We derive your “smarts” through your academic achievements (grades and test scores) as well as your ability to communicate the impact of your research to a broader audience.  We want to hear about the capabilities you have developed from your experience both inside and outside the classroom or laboratory. What difficult things have you accomplished in the past?

BRIDGE TO BCG

Bridge to BCG is a three day workshop for advanced degree candidates, being held this summer in Boston. This program is meant allow participants to test drive consulting and:

  • Find out about consulting and get to know BCG
  • Participate in a realistic case team experience
  • Learn from BCG’s thought leaders
  • Meet BCG consultants and students during social and educational events

Travel and meal expenses will be covered. This workshop is specifically for advanced degree candidates (PhDs, MDs, post-docs, and JDs) who plan to begin a full-time position at BCG in 2018. If you are currently a practicing MD or in residency, or a Post-Doc, the 2018 graduation date requirement does not apply. Learn more by visiting our website at ON.BCG.COM/BCGADC.

We will be holding an information session at the U of T campus on March 21st, at 6:00 pm for MD, JD, PhD and Post-Docs interested to learn more about the Bridge to BCG summer program. Please review registration information below.
