Lebogang Poonyane
CEO at Global Capital Empowerment Private Equity Fund

As with most industries, the fourth industrial revolution will require that Management Consultants adapt to various environments and situations rapidly. Good consultants will need to learn how to learn and problem solve much faster in situations that are new and unfamiliar to their clients and the firms that employ them.

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

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

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.
