Columbia Graduate Consulting Club

A Few Words about Consulting

Consultants are people who give advice in a specific field. There are many different types of consultants and consulting firms, such as financial, management, IT, and HR. Consultants are problem solvers who are able to identify areas of improvement in an organization and provide recommendations. Organizations and companies value consultants for their expertise and their ability to provide objective viewpoints when addressing challenging problems. 

Our Goal and Mission 

The goal of Columbia Columbia Consulting Club is to help graduate students, post-docs, and alumni learn more about and prepare for careers in consulting. In addition to hosting case practices, Columbia Graduate Consulting Club also organizes recruiting events, workshops, panels, and other events that give our members opportunities to meet consultants, learn about the industry, and develop the skills needed to be consultants. Please refer to our calendar for when upcoming events will take place.
