“Management Consulting” floats around as a highly coveted and prestigious career choice for graduate trainees. Do you want to learn more about the industry and hear more about the experiences of successful former graduate students? What’s Consulting? is the event for you.  

What’s Consulting? is hosted by the Graduate Management Consulting Association (GMCA): a student-run organization that aims to introduce our graduate community to the world of consulting and to the resources available to further explore consulting.
This event is made up of 1) an information session, where students are provided with an overview of the GMCA’s annual events and 2) a panel discussion for Q&A with multiple consultants from renowned consulting firms. Through this event, we aim to support graduate students in understanding the day-to-day activities of consultants and how a non-business background can provide valuable skills that are sought after by such firms. This year, What’s Consulting? will be held virtually over Zoom on Thursday, September 10th, 2020 from 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM. If you are interested in attending this event, please fill out the registration form and reserve your ticket through Eventbrite. Tickets are available on a first-come first-serve basis.
