To the CCTMC Community, 


The Consulting Club at Texas Medical Center is pleased to announce the first issue of CCTMC connect for 2022. This year we plan on adding exciting new sections to the CCTMC Connect newsletter to make it a source of information for everything related to consulting, curated with an advanced degree audience in mind. 


Please join me in congratulating the External Division for their amazing efforts in launching the 2022 Case competition in conjunction with the consulting clubs at Duke and UNC. It is our largest case competition to date. Our newest division, Community, aspires to make us a the hub for members to connect with each other and we started this by launching CASE CAMP. The Education team continues its excellent efforts of providing preparation material for consulting with their 3 part Break into Consulting series and 6 part Case Training series. The Agency team has successfully staffed and trained members for three projects. The Business Development team is engaging with several exciting new clients for Agency projects and we hope to extend the number of projects. The Finance and Marketing Division continues to be the source of information for current and prospective CCTMC members and we hope to increase our members’ interest in consulting throughout the year. 


In this issue, we have an exclusive and exciting interview with one of our past members who recently received a full-time consulting offer from BCG. We also have an informational article that can help you prepare for our upcoming case competition, and an exciting crossword that you can fill in to enter our raffle to win $50!
