ConnectUs McGill Students

ConnectUs (CU) is an organization whose overarching goal is to provide students with opportunities to give back to the community. Our team noticed that as students seek networking opportunities, they often overlook small businesses and nonprofits, usually the ones in most dire need of assistance. Given the repercussions of the pandemic, particularly on local businesses, these so-called “small players” often lack the resources to navigate the current business climate and respond to changing consumer needs. We see this as a great opportunity for McGill students to take the initiative to do their part to support such organizations in need of additional support. ConnectUs members will provide businesses with solutions and general expertise to respond to existing organizational challenges in exchange for invaluable experiences, enabling members to develop critical problem-solving skills.

McGill Students Graduate Management Consulting Association (GMCA)

In the past, entering the competitive world of management consulting had been the exclusive privilege of business school graduates. However consulting firms have recently started recruiting Ph.D.s in order to increase their depth of expertise in various specialized industries.

With this in mind, we created the McGill Graduate Management Consulting Association (McGill GMCA). Our goal is to provide exceptional graduate students and post-doctoral trainees with the training and resources necessary to enter and to excel in the competitive world of management consulting.
