Last Friday, first year MBAs had the opportunity to learn a little bit more about a very popular career for MBA grads – consulting. Consultants from some of the top consulting firms around the country came to Fisher and spent the afternoon and evening sharing their knowledge and experiences.
The career management office did a great job at bringing in Fisher alumni and other professionals in order to help students learn more about career opportunities in the consulting world. The keynote speakers highlighted what an associate consultant out of business school should expect during their first few years on the job. All of the consultants took time to sit on a panel and answer questions from Fisher MBAs.
The highlight of the event was the Ernst and Young case competition practice session. The session was designed to help consulting students learn what to expect in case interviews.
From having attended the Consulting Foundation Seminar I feel that I have a much better understanding of what a consultant does each day…besides travel.
