To the CCTMC Community,

To the CCTMC community, 

 

We are pleased to announce the first issue of the 2023 CCTMC Connect. This first quarter has been very busy and very productive! Each division has worked together to bring some exciting events to our members. 

  • Our education team hosted two seminars with case coach Peter K to better equip members with tips on acing the case interview as well as tips for case math. Education also hosted a week long Case Camp to help prepare our members to become consultants. 

  • Our community team has been hard at work to host networking opportunities with current consults as well as members in the community who want to do consulting. Our agency team has finished two client-facing projects providing opportunities for our members to work on real-life consulting opportunities. 

  • Our business development team is working on recruiting more clients for agency projects, which means more opportunities for you in the future. Additionally, they are working on a partnership with TAMU to broaden our ability to work on energy related projects. More to come on those soon! 

  • Finally, our external affairs team successfully hosted the 2023 Duke-UNC-TMC National Case Competition. This case competition brought in 29 team applications, judges from premier consulting firms and included three educational workshops for participants to learn about all aspects of consulting. 

 

Additionally, we at the finance and marketing branch have restructured our membership tier and added an additional benefit, the option to purchase casecoach, to our resource package for a reduced fee (which you can access here after purchasing our resource package: https://www.medcenterconsulting.com/services-basic). We’ve also been hard at work to create a weekly Monday newsletter which consolidates information about all upcoming events both internal and external to make sure things are easier to find (and we don’t spam your email too much!).

 

In this issue we have an interview with Apoorv Gupta, a partner at BCG. He describes their progression from consultant to partner at BCG as well as what life is like working as a consultant across the globe. We also include a recap of the seminar with Peter K on case math as well as an example of how to solve case math. If you missed the seminar and want to watch the full thing, be sure to subscribe to our resource package as all our previous seminars are available. 

 

As always, we hope that the information provided here is valuable and helps you as you explore the consulting career.
