IE Consulting Club with Accenture Strategy

Written on April 30, 2018 by Campus Life in Professional

The IE Consulting Club had last month the pleasure of teaming up with Accenture Strategy – Accenture Showcase Page to present another round of the Club’s case-cracking sessions on Campus. In this occasion our guest speaker, Anton Riestra -Director for the Energy Sector- conducted a Company presentation, and introduced us to the main tech trends disrupting the Electricity Sector, such as Electric Vehicles. We finished with a real-life case on the same topic. We would like to thank him and Diana Mahecha Ramírez again for their time and insights on the company, strategy-related careers and tips to prepare for recruitment processes. The event was a success, reaching overcapacity! This would have not been possible without all the effort of the Club Coordinators, Miguel Donetch, Cem Özmen, Syna Fischer, Alvaro Rueda Arellano, Manuel Ehmann, Christian Leibold Abhyudaya Choumal on the one side; and Marina Moreno and María López Domínguez on the Accenture side. This also portrays the continued growth of strategic relationships with the consulting industry thanks to IE’s Career Services and IE Corporate Relations through Juan Oyarzabal Lodge, BEATRIZ GARCIA-BERNALT and Dean Price from IE Business School.

Thank you all!

IE Consulting Club with Christian Cella

Written on March 23, 2018 by Campus Life in Professional

The IE Consulting Club had the honour of hosting Christian Cella, VP of Strategy & Market Development for Emerging Markets at Wolters Kluwer. He conducted a very interactive crack-the-case event with the attendees on a real-life company example. We would like to thank him again for his time and insights on the company and strategy-related careers. The event was a success with more than 100 registered people. This would have not been possible without Ramita Vig, former IMBA and MscBD graduate; Juan Oyarzabal Lodge, BEATRIZ GARCIA-BERNALT from IE Business School; and to the rest of the coordinators: Cem Özmen, Syna Fischer and Alvaro Rueda Arellano.

Thank you all!

LOOKING FORWARD

Written on December 14, 2017 by Campus Life in Professional

The IE Consulting Club is extremely happy about the interest and participation on campus in the past semester. We are excited to announce that we will be continuing regular case cracking sessions after the break, and diversify our portfolio of events even further.

Case Cracking Wednesdays
The Consulting Club meets weekly for its “Case Cracking” session, in which we cover the basics of management consulting cases, walk you through a group case, facilitate individual case cracking or host guest speakers from the industry. We witnessed an increase in the participation rate throughout the year, and expect regular participation of those who might be preparing for consulting interviews in the upcoming semester.

Extended Membership
We are working hard to increase diverse participation in our activities, and proud to note that already many students from the IMBA, MIF, MIM, MIAF and Masters in Big Data are joining us. We plan to extend membership to IE University students by organizing joint activities and combining powers to host bigger and more inclusive events.

Company partnerships
We are looking forward to constructive long-term collaborations with firms from the industry, via co-hosting events and inviting more speakers to inform our members about the job functions and tips on a good application.

Events
Please make sure you follow us on CampusGroups and join our Facebook page! There is nothing worse than signing up late and ending on a waiting list for an event you really want to attend. We will continue hosting representatives from renowned consulting firms and will increase our on-campus presence by giving you the chance to show what you have learnt during our case cracking sessions.

Our main aim always is to build a sustainable bridge between IE students and consulting firms, by devoting as much resources as possible to get you ready for that case interview you were waiting for!

Consulting Club – Case Cracking Sessions

Written on December 13, 2017 by Campus Life in Professional

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

Infosys Ltd, Vijay Warrier, Principal Consultant

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-Cocktail, Gonzalo Valdes, Consultant

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.

– Infosys Ltd, Vijay Warrier, Principal Consultant
– IBM, German Sanchez Couso, Consulant
– Oliver Wyman, Leticia Rubira, Senior Consultant
– The-Cocktail, Gonzalo Valdes, Consultant

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.
