WHY CONSULTING

“I had fantastic internships while in undergrad, but could not choose just one industry and company to commit to. Consulting has enabled me to see how organizations work across industries and continents, making me a more well-rounded professional. I received the opportunity to interview with A.T. Kearney after winning the R. Gene Richter Scholarship in 2009, and the rest is history!”

ONE THING LEARNED AT MSU THAT HAS AIDED CAREER

“I believe the Spartan spirit of being a strong team member and a “Spartans Will” attitude have enabled me to propel through my career. Keeping this positive, can-do mindset has given me the confidence to tackle projects and embrace life opportunities such as moving across the world (twice!) that I never would have deemed possible before.”

BIGGEST SURPRISE IN CONSULTING CAREER

The commitment of your team members, the hours can be long, and the clients challenging, but having the privilege of being on a team with such smart and collaborative individuals to tackle interesting problems never ceases to amaze me.”

ADVICE TO SOMEONE ASPIRING TO CONSULTING CAREER

“Dive in! Go for the project that scares you, take the overseas gig, put your all into this career and take away as many learnings and experiences as you can.”
