About The Consulting Club

Who We Are
The Bauer MBA Society (BMBAS) Consulting Club is an organization that is dedicated to bringing together Bauer graduate students interested in consulting careers and promoting the consulting profession within the Bauer community. We strive to achieve this by focusing on the following objectives:

1. Exposing students to Consulting – Increasing awareness of the consulting profession through consulting-related seminars, consulting-firm site visits, and other networking opportunities.
2. Provide students with practice in Consulting – Help facilitate opportunities for students to gain more real-world consulting experience by working with University resources and local businesses to identify and scope potential consulting engagements
3. Help students prepare for Consulting case interviews – Increase our members’ readiness for consulting careers through providing case-interview preparation.
