Colgate Consulting Club
The consulting profession occupies a unique niche in the world of business. Since consulting involves complex problem-solving across a myriad of industries, consultants invariably obtain an in-depth understanding of various sectors of the economy and develop a vast professional network. Consulting also affords the opportunity to engage in highly impactful and stimulating work in synergy with a diverse group of motivated and intelligent individuals. This lends itself to the acquisition of the invaluable skills of critical thinking, negotiation, and problem-solving.
What do we do?
Colgate Consulting Club's objective is to increase awareness about consulting careers among Colgate students by providing them with the necessary preparation, education, and resources. The club holds weekly information sessions to provide students with an accurate view of the various type of internal and external consulting roles, industries, and products. We invite alumni speakers, in person and virtually, from industries including but not limited to: healthcare, finance, public sector, intelligence, non-profit, litigation, industrial, automotive, consumer packaged goods, travel, media, and sustainability. We also organize case workshops, often fueled by alumni efforts, in order to increase students' business problem-solving skills.
