Andrew Rasetti, Management Consulting Alum
Student at Duke University
"If you are looking to push yourself and develop your professional skills in an applied setting, then Career Semester could be a great fit for you. I was challenged with learning new material and applying this knowledge to real world problems, and it feels amazing to know that the work I have done has made a real difference for the company I am working with. Most of all, the format of the course was really effective, as it allowed me to ground my knowledge in theory and then test myself in an applied setting."

Rawia Mosleh
New York University (NYU) Class of 2023

My learning experience has been the most helpful so far. One of the best choices I've made this year was probably taking a part in this course since it helped dive deeper in the field of management consulting and understand if it is a field I want to work in in the future.

Christopher Huang
Oxford Class of 2018

From performing market analyses using Porter’s Five Forces, to understanding how we are positioned within the market using STP mapping, to developing dynamic financial models, the consulting course has prepared me to address a wide range of business problems, if not all, with confidence.

Panyakorn Rakpanitmanee
Michigan Class of 2018

For consulting we had to to be able to analyze data like a data scientist, create a PowerPoint deck like a designer, do excel modeling like a broker. For me, this aspect of the course, in addition to an awesome instructor and TAs, makes every class so enjoyable.

Liam Collins
University of Hong Kong Class of 2020

Our teacher, Anton, created a dynamic that really inspired me to perform and to squeeze every bit of learning and enjoyment out of this course - our final project wouldn't have been the same without his drive.

Dina Sokol
Emory University Class of 2022

The class has definitely pushed me out of my comfort zone, but in a good way. I have worked with many different people who come from different backgrounds and experience levels.
