  • Sample Companies
  • Sample Functional Roles
  • Consulting is a competitive industry with a highly structured timeline. Partner with the Career Development Office to understand the process. Consultants provide management advice within a strategic, organizational, or operational context to help organizations improve their performance. This industry appeals to many because it is open to diverse backgrounds and work experiences. However, you must demonstrate and articulate concrete examples of analytical and critical thinking skills. Understanding what consultants do and the transferable skills you have is key. Typical Student Profile 670+ GMAT and 3.5+ GPA are highly desirable. Some firms may have higher requirements. GMAT preferred over GRE.For more information, view the CDO’s Consulting Roadmap.
