Considering a career in strategy or management consulting? The Edinburgh University Case Competition aims to help participants discover, learn, and test their ability by competing to solve a consulting engagement.
Over the course of a weekend, teams will be tasked to solve and recommend solutions to a mock client facing key strategic/operational issues. Participants will get a chance to conduct client interviews to gain primary data, generate insights through individual research, produce innovative recommendations, and ultimately present findings to a panel.
The Case Competition is in an invaluable opportunity for participants to hone core consulting skills, including developing a strong analytical mind-set, effective teamwork, and client interaction. Rest assured, an elusive award awaits the winning team!
Throughout the engagement, participants will also have the unwavering support and guidance from members of the Edinburgh University Consulting Club and FreshSight, who will run a crash-course on effective consulting on March 8th. This will allow participants to interact with students with real consulting experience and learn first-hand from some of Edinburgh University’s brightest consulting prospects. We look forward to seeing you there!
