MBA Consulting Club

Come and join the fastest-growing interest group on the CBD campus. MBA Consulting Club now has 25 members across three universities and four degree programs. Last week we were joined by guest consultant Matt Whiting, partner at the boutique firm Mozaic Management. Matt gave excellent feedback on our consulting skills and role-played some of the difficult client behaviours he has experienced.
We aim to have joint case interview practice sessions with AGSM every two weeks in order to develop skills relevant to management consulting.
