"Preparing Notre Dame advanced degree students for careers in management consulting"
Welcome to the University of Notre Dame Graduate Consulting Careers (NDGCC) webpage. We are a graduate student-led initiative of the Center for Career Development open to all Notre Dame graduate students and postdoctoral researchers who are interested in pursuing management consulting as a career.
I am a fifth year PhD student in Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering. I am interested to solve real-world problem and make an impact. I have internship experience at McKinsey & Co. and also interview experience at major consulting firms. Together with the rest of the Graduate Consulting Careers Initiative and fellow Board members, I hope our collective knowledge and experience would help more Notre Dame graduate students enter the consulting industry.
