Welcome to the Consulting Community

This is a community for those interested in Consulting careers, and brings together news, resources and events from the CDO, Clubs, and MIT Sloan community.

Every year, a large number of MIT Sloan business students, across multiple programs, are recruited for internships and full-time roles in consulting.  These firms are looking for students with:

  • Conceptual problem-solving/analytical/quantitative skills
  • Persuasive communication skills and ability to influence change
  • Client relationship skills
  • Intellectual curiosity and ability to learn quickly
  • Adaptable to diverse working environments
  • Project management/prioritization

As consulting firms hire large classes of business graduates, their recruiting process involves a number of events where representatives meet large numbers of students, and a multi-stage interview process.  Recruiting begins early for these roles.
