This year, Stanford Consulting is launching the inaugural SC Case Club. The program centers on providing students with early exposure to the consulting industry, opportunities to interact with industry professionals, and the chance to build skills and experience through team based business case analysis.
Members of the Case Club will interact with and learn from consultants from top firms, learn business analysis through case workshops, sharpen their skills by creating and delivering strong presentations, and collaborate in teams to analyze and solve business questions. SC Case Club will focus on cultivating problem solving and business intuition, key skills that underly any consulting engagement. In addition to centralizing a vibrant community of students committed to learning about the consulting profession, the program seeks to provide a foundation in business problem solving that can also be useful for professional recruiting. Please sign up here to receive updates about the program.
All students can also attend workshops or informations sessions that we set up with leading consulting firms throughout the year. Events next quarter include:
