We strive to offer value for members of all experience levels with a goal of preparing the best candidates for consulting.
Our Externals division has entered a historic collaboration with the consulting clubs of Duke University and UNC-Chapel Hill to host a joint Duke-UNC-TMC Case Competition, which is set to be one of the largest graduate case competitions in the nation!

The External Division’s preparations for CCTMC’s 2022 Case Competition are in full swing! This year, we entered a historic collaboration with the graduate consulting clubs of Duke University and UNC-Chapel Hill, and are organizing CCTMC’s largest case competition to date!. The Duke-UNC-TMC National Case Competition is expected to have a significantly larger number of teams as well as the number of expert judges compared to previous years. In fact, the competition judge panel now includes more than 40 experienced consultants from premier consulting firms, including McKinsey & Company, BCG, Bain & Company, L.E.K., ClearView Healthcare Partners, and many others. Triangle Insights, a consulting firm based out of North Carolina is providing this year’s case prompt and has offered a compelling prize to the winners - a first-round interview for a full-time position with the firm!
The Community Division is the newest division, and our aspiration is that our division can become the hub wherein our members connect with one another, and we can connect our members with consultants and resources. This year we launched CASE CAMP, a case practice and resource sharing platform aiming to provide convenience, and connection, to anyone who wants to learn and prepare for consulting case interviews. In addition, we will organize virtual and in-person networking events to bring in consultants from various firms to share their experiences. Please keep an eye out for our upcoming events!
The Agency has successfully staffed and trained members for three projects: competitive landscape analysis for an educational streaming platform company; comprehensive market landscape analysis for a physician companion technology startup; and advising a client on the best licensing path for acoustic monitoring IP. Each team consists of 5-6 consultants led by an experienced project manager. The three projects have been progressing and will be concluded in early April. We will be recruiting for more client-facing projects in the summer. Please join us if you want to experience what it’s like to be a real consultant!
The Education division strives to provide members with resources to develop skills that are necessary for a successful consulting career.
Currently, we are launching a 3-part Break-into-Consulting Series focusing on application preparation, communication skills, and a guest coffee chat. In April, we will launch a 6-part Case Training Series to further prepare you for a consulting career. In May, we will provide many opportunities to listen to valuable experiences from current consultants. More events are under preparation for later this year.
Our division is constantly seeking highly motivated students who want to create educational opportunities for other members while honing their own skills. Contact the CCTMC Executive Team if you are interested in joining our efforts!
CCTMC has been engaging with several exciting new clients for Agency projects. We have set out to strike a balance between local organizations, science-based startup companies, established small businesses, and everything in between. Over the next year, we plan to set up 12 different projects for members to work on and gain real experience working as a consultant!

Finance & Marketing
The Finance & Marketing Division is responsible for both financial aspects of the CCTMC as well as for sharing information with our members about our newest events. We handle all financial businesses for the organization and ensure that our training members are gaining the most value for their investment in both us and themselves. We regularly communicate with our members on current and future events through our weekly Monday emails. In addition, this year we are launching a sponsorship campaign with the hopes of acquiring a sponsoring partnership with local consulting firms.
We are excited to share this quarterly publication with our members, which includes one of our past members who just recently received an offer from BCG! The CCTMC Connect will also feature 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!
