To the CCTMC Community,
To the CCTMC Community,
We are pleased to announce the third issue of CCTMC Connect in 2022. This third quarter has been busy for all of us in the CCTMC community, but different divisions all gained amazing achievements. Education team spearheaded the organization of the successful Women in Consulting series in collaboration with 10 other consulting clubs, with the highest-ever attendance of 100+. Wonderful discussions were carried out among students and female consultants from Bain, BCG, McKinsey, LEK, IQVIA and Health Advances. Community division successfully hosted our first in-person social with Mercury Data Science. This is the first social we have hosted with a consulting firm and the division is looking forward to organizing more events to provide different avenues for members to network with firms and gain career development advice. The Business Development division kept doing an excellent job by bringing in another 4 projects during the fall cycle. They worked together with the Agency division to put a perfect end to all projects that we have this year. More projects will open at the beginning of 2023 and please keep tuned for updates. Finance and Marketing division gained this huge benefit for members by acquiring a 20% discount from Case Coach, the market-leading case preparation toolkit, for all our members within the Texas Medical Center.
