Consulting is a big, one-size-fits-all term that includes virtually any form of advice-giving. Many people think first of management consulting, also called strategy consulting, which specializes in providing advice about strategic and core operational issues – but there are many other types of consulting, including marketing consulting, technology consulting, human resources consulting, just to name a few. Through professionals in the field and in collaboration with the Bentley Consulting Group, the Consulting Career Community will expose students to the consulting industry, relevant career paths, required competencies, and the all-important case interview technique.

Actuarial or mathematical sciences as a major can have a big payoff!

2014 Bentley graduates who pursued actuarial careers were very well compensated with average/median base compensation of $65,000 – a 25% premium over the class average. An impressive ROI!

While completing my MBA, I was recruited to work as a management consultant. I still remember two full days of grueling interviews, assessments, role plays and case studies.

Learn more about the consulting industry and understand why a case interview is an excellent barometer of whether this is the field for you. We are fortunate to have Alfonso Martinez, 2013 graduate and Business Analyst at Accenture sharing his inside tips and strategies for success. Not only did Alfonso ace the case when interviewing at Accenture, but he was also a member of an award winning Fed Challenge Case Competition team! Hope to see you Friday at 10am!
