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. In the face of dwindling employment prospects in both academia and industry, management consulting offers an exciting career opportunity for graduate students who wish to apply their analytical and critical thinking skills to achieve a real-world impact.
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.
Throughout the year, we will offer a number of events, including consulting firm information sessions, educational training sessions, case workshops led by consultants from Montreal’s top firms, networking opportunities, as well as various opportunities to test and improve your skills in case competitions!
To find out more about our events and resources, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or become a GMCA member by subscribing to our listserv!
