Reflecting on second half of 2017

Second half of 2017 saw a few changes to how the IE Consulting Club ran events with success in terms of number of attendees and public profile.

The changes were:
– Holding the weekly sessions on Wednesday evenings,
– Inviting more outside speakers, and
– Organising one-on-one case cracking sessions.

Case cracking Wednesdays

Moving the Club’s weekly meetings to Wednesday evenings proved to be attractive to members. Attendance rates shot up 4 to 5 times than previously. The Club also noticed a significant increase in attendances from MIM, MBD, MIAF, and students from the bachelor programme.

The Club welcomes all students and alumni to join the weekly sessions. The diversity in experience and background of students from various programme adds to the quality of discussion and learning.

Increasing visibility with consultancy firms

The Club also hosted four practitioners from the industry to explain their work, recruitment process, and answer members’ questions. The Club would like to re-iterate gratitude for their time and advice.

One-on-one case cracking sessions

Practicing cases are important ahead of interviews, and one-on-one sessions provided members an opportunity to do so. Even though many members found this challenging given their low awareness of the approaches and methods in the beginning, significant improvement in members’ skills were noticeable towards later on the semester.

In 2018, the IE Consulting Club looks forward to continue growing and support our members’ skills development which are required to succeed as consultants.
