As a consultant, companies will look to you for answers: you need to recognize opportunities and hazards that others have missed, and convince company leaders that your solutions are the right ones. In the Consulting Academy, you’ll learn about the wide variety of opportunities available to prospective consultants. You’ll take part in company visits and networking opportunities with Kelley alumni at top consulting firms, and you’ll prove yourself through real-world consulting projects.
