The annual University of Waterloo Management Consulting Case Competition is a business case competition judged by industry professionals from top consulting firms. The competition takes place in March and provides an excellent opportunity for students to enhance their analytical and problem-solving skills. In addition, students have the opportunity to network and establish relationships with firm representatives. The winning team will receive $1000 in cash prize.
The CEO factory event will consist of both a panel discussion and a networking session. Students will be able to gain insight into a career in Management Consulting and a chance to expand their professional networking while also allowing firms to learn more about the skills and ideas Waterloo students can offer. With the main recruiting season coming up, this event will bring together both students and the industry’s leading management consulting firms.
Led by top students who have gone through rigorous consulting training, case prep sessions help UW students prepare for an integral part of consulting interviews. The case prep sessions will cover the basics of case interviews, resources to help students succeed, and a risk-free place to practice. These sessions are open to all programs and all years.
UWMCC offers opportunities for students to visit office locations of renowned management consulting firms through bus trip tours. During these office visits, students have the opportunity to network with top consulting firms and future employers. The visits also serve as an opportunity for students to gauge the right fit by interacting with office staff and learn more about a consulting career from the industry experts. We also invite firms to offer lecture series on campus.
Similar to CEO Factory, Co-op Panel is another opportunity for students to explore management consulting profession, and it offers a more relaxing atmosphere as panelists are senior or graduating UW students who have had internship/co-op experiences in top consulting firms.
