WHY CONSULTING

“After speaking to classmates and alumni, I explored consulting when I started business school. I discovered I greatly enjoyed case interview practice. That was the first sign I might really like consulting. Ultimately, I was sold on the ability to learn how to tackle problems in a structured way, learn about different business industries and capabilities, and be surrounded by like-minded individuals.”

ONE THING LEARNED AT MSU THAT HAS AIDED CAREER

“Being approachable, down-to-earth, and reliable are critical to being successful.”

BIGGEST SURPRISE IN CONSULTING CAREER

“I have been most surprised by the speed of work — data analysis, brainstorming, and decisions occur at a much more rapid pace than in Corporate America.”

ADVICE TO SOMEONE ASPIRING TO CONSULTING CAREER

“Find the right mentors….and the right credit card to charge your expenses.”
