Why This Program?

“The consulting industry is transitioning to address more complex questions that require more insight, competencies, and expertise. Consultants need to make better recommendations that link everything together across the business. I came to this program since it offers a broad management curriculum that teaches students about the connections between topics. I also liked the environment because students come from all types of industries, backgrounds, and parts of the world. It’s valuable to get out of silos and gain new perspectives. Finally, I came here to challenge myself. I didn’t want to go anywhere else!”
