More than half the people in top MBA programs and a significant number of college seniors flirt with the idea of becoming a management consultant after graduation. It's a high-paying, high-profile field that offers students the opportunity to take on a lot of responsibility right out of school and quickly learn a great deal about the business world.

The big names in management consulting are well known. Bain & Co., the Boston Consulting Group (BCG), McKinsey & Co., and a solid crop of similar firms vie for contracts from the Fortune 500. Each firm has a slightly different focus, culture, and approach. 

“Consulting” is a big, one-size-fits-all term that includes virtually any form of advice-giving in a business setting. The management consulting segment of the industry includes firms that specialize in providing advice about strategic and core operational issues, such as finding new channels for selling products or reducing the costs involved in producing a product. Although some of the highest profile firms populate this segment, they're not the only ones doing consulting.

Thousands of other organizations and individuals call themselves consultants and make money selling their advisory services, and they offer plenty of opportunities for employment. If you like the idea of advising businesses and you have a particular interest in computers, human resources, corporate communications, mobile communications, health care, financial services, real estate, e-commerce, or some other specialized field, there's a good chance that you can find a position within an organization doing precisely that.

Overall, the outlook for the management consulting industry is positive. We predict a steady 7% annual increase in consulting revenue across the board through the end of the decade.


Consultants tackle a wide variety of business problems and provide solutions for their clients. Client companies hire consultants when they are up against problems that require expertise beyond what their staffs can provide, or when they need the fresh perspective of an outsider.

For consultants, this means constantly being exposed to the greatest challenges companies face: how to integrate staff and work processes after an acquisition, how to restructure after bankruptcy, where to set up manufacturing facilities abroad, how to attract and retain the right employees. Depending on the size and chosen strategy of the firm, these problems can be as straightforward as researching a new market or as complex as rethinking the client's entire organization. 

By and large, the things insiders like about consulting are similar across the board. They enjoy the variety afforded by working in different industries for many different clients, the intellectual challenge of pushing themselves to the limit as they tackle complex business problems, and the people with whom they work. And they like the money and the perks. The industry pays very well, and consultants travel in style. Consulting insiders also have a litany of complaints: 60-hour workweeks are standard, extended travel is the rule, and personal plans often must be put on hold. Clients-not you-drive the deadlines, which can severely cut into your social life. In addition, at some point most consultants long for the opportunity to actually implement their great ideas.



As each firm has its favourite buzzwords, it also has unique terminology for its rank and file. While the titles might vary from firm to firm, the roles can basically be divided as follows: analyst (also called research associate or staff consultant at some firms), consultant (or senior consultant), manager, and partner or vice president. In addition, consulting firms hire a cadre of highly capable nonprofessional staff to fill administrative and support positions.


Most consulting firms have a fairly large pool of college-educated administrative assistants and support staff on board.



This is the position at the bottom of the professional pyramid. The vast bulk of analysts are young, talented, and hungry college graduates. 


This is the typical port of entry for newly minted MBAs (and increasingly for other graduate students as well). Senior consultants often perform research and analysis, formulate recommendations, and present findings to the client. 

·         MANAGER
After a few years, a senior consultant will move up to manager. As the title implies, this usually means leading a team of consultants and analysts toward project completion. 

This will be a role that you earn and receive congratulation from your school fellows.



We offer inspired students a broad range of knowledge and practical experiences stepping into management consulting industry.
