This Info Course will provide an inside look into management consulting, examples of business problems that consultants help life sciences and healthcare businesses solve, and a hands-on opportunity to experience and learn how to approach business problems in the life sciences and healthcare.  In the first session, McKinsey and Co. will discuss what it means to be a consultant, the life-style of a consultant, the transition from academic research or medicine into consulting, and give real-world examples of problems consulting companies solve.  The Harvard Graduate Consulting Club will then provide a student perspective on the interview process and how to decide if consulting is right for you. 

For registered students, McKinsey and Co. will present consulting problem solving strategies and interview preparation tips followed by a Harvard Graduate Consulting Club led hands-on mock consulting engagement to test out consulting for yourself!

The aim of this Info Course is to expose, educate, and provide the wider HMS community with deeper insight into career opportunities for graduate and medical students as well as post-docs.
