What is the best advice for a sophomore hoping to become a management consultant??

I have always wanted to go into consulting, and so I joined a few business clubs on campus, and have researched different firms. I am not sure where to go from here though. If you were a sophomore in college wanting to go into the field, where would you go from here? Is it important to specifically choose one field of consulting, or should I keep it more broad? How do I know which skills they will be looking for in interviews?

Is getting MBA post-grad worth it? Bentley University

I am currently a consulting intern at a Big 4 company and was wondering if getting my MBA degree soon after my Bachelors degree is worth it? I have spoken with so many successful professionals in the firm without one and do not see the ROI being so high. I am currently on an accelerated MBA at Bentley University and have up to five years to finish my MBA after graduating, but not sure if the costs is worth it if I want to stick with consutling.

As a U.S. Army Vet and non-traditional student who will graduate at the age of 34 with a degree in finance, how can I make myself an attractive candidate for hire at competitive firms such as the Big 4 firms, McKinsey, Bain, or BCG.

I am studying at UMD - Smith School of Business. I have 2 years of school remaining. I have no relevant work history outside of my current internship at a Big 4 firm. I am shooting for a Management Consultant position.

As I begin to explore possible subjects in higher education, what major would best teach me the skills most useful in landing and excelling at a consulting job at a respected firm?

I am currently taking a business management course at Oxford and we have been talking about consulting. We have practised consulting with case studies, but not really discussed what it takes to become one professionally. #business #business-development #consulting #management-consulting #strategic-consulting
