“Easing transition between graduate life and a successful consulting career”

MIT vs. Harvard Case Competition

The Consulting Club at MIT (CCM) and the Harvard Graduate Consulting Club (HGCC) are delighted to announce that the 2012 MIT vs. Harvard Case Competition registration is now open!

The MIT vs. Harvard Case Competition is a great way to learn about consulting, get experience working in teams, get exposure to real business problems and network with consultants and other students across Harvard and MIT. During the competition, teams of 4 participants will work together over 11 days to crack a real business case and prepare for a presentation to a panel of judges from various top consulting firms. Throughout the competition, you will be mentored by consultants and industry experts who will help you structure the case, find the resources, obtain industry specific insights, and cover other areas pertinent to the case. You may also find the feedback provided by judges to be helpful as you hone your case solving skills.
