From PhD to Management Consulting Talks: Information Session
Management Consultants apply critical-thinking skills to solve complex problems faced by businesses, from mining to biotech companies. They identify issues, form hypotheses, conduct analyses, formulate recommendations, and discuss them with the client’s management.
Many PhD graduates choose consulting because they find they can apply their problem-solving skills in new ways, work within stimulating team settings, and make measurable impact more quickly and more often.
In this info session, you will hear more about management consulting from Mohammad Behnam, Ph.D. He is an Engagement Manager at McKinsey & Company, an inventor, and an entrepreneur.
You will also learn about the consulting recruitment process from the perspective of a current UBC PhD student who secured a job offer from Boston Consulting Group (BCG) last year. Christopher Roach is in the Genome Science and Technology Program. He has been part of the UBC Board of Governors, and Senate, and he is also a former President of the Graduate Student Society.
Join us at Thea’s lounge at the Graduate Student Centre on March 11th at 5:45 pm. Snacks will be provided.
