"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."
"Accenture meant getting into the office at 9am and doing some research on a current issue and our client, then we would prepare for meetings/presentations with our manager. What I enjoy most about my internship is that I feel like I am actually working on a real project."
"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."
"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."
"This class was one of the most rewarding classes I have ever taken, and I honestly could not have asked for a better teacher. Figuring out my career path now seems a little less daunting and I am so grateful to have had Anton as a teacher and mentor."
