Patience, expertise, human and management qualities but you know what the best Management Consultant i had the chance to meet had all something is common. They were themself ! Bring yourself to the meeting, classroom and that is how you will make the difference. Again learn that people will not remember all you said but surely remember how they felt in your presence. Hope this helps !

I highly suggest you find the specific industry you intend to work within and you learn this industry thoroughly. When you enter the university they teach you concepts that may not make sense until you are able to apply them to real world experiences in the industry you intend to work in. Specializing in an industry and becoming familiar with that industries processes will allow you to gain expertise. Furthermore, after graduation you should continue to learn about advancements in your industry/field and digital disruptions or innovation that will allow you to be ahead of the curve and excel in consulting.

In order to become a professional consultant, I think first of all, I should have the ability to collect, analyze, communicate, coordinate with others, and basic understanding of business.The other important thing is financial management, because you can analyze a lot of problems through the financial report, and the company can know a thing or two about the business development.As well as economics is indispensable, such as do a PEST analysis, porter five analysis of what all need these knowledge, combined with the national policy of the company's strategy, to provide professional advice to the customer.

First, you are going to attend a systematic, long-range, formal psychology training course. Second, you have to learn a more comprehensive theory (from general psychology to neuroscience; from psychotherapy theory to psychiatry). Third, you have to accept a personal experience (to be a visitor to explore yourself). Fourthly, you should begin to work with visitors while supervising and companionship (avoid streaking). After that, you have to keep learning, self-exploration, and open-mindedness.
