About Us

The Consulting Club at MIT (CCM)

The Consulting Club at MIT aims to facilitate a seamless transition from graduate school to a successful career in management consulting through awareness, skill building, and networking. We consist of a vibrant community of 500 student members and 60 alumni members.


We organize discussion panels, firm info sessions, and have informational databases that members can use to learn more about the consulting industry.

Skill Building

We run resume critique workshops, business discussion panels, case interview practice sessions, and the MIT vs. Harvard Case Competition in collaboration with the Harvard Graduate Consulting Club to help students build the skills necessary to become a consultant.


We work in collaboration with consulting firms and other organizations in the Boston area to give graduate students opportunities to network with colleagues who share similar interests.


Consultants value students who show leadership and initiative. Ask our executive team if there are oppotunities availble for you to join and make lasting impacts!

Club Events

The Consulting Club at MIT holds a variety of events that are designed to help you succeed in the consulting world. These events help our members learn about the field of consulting and gain insight through real world experiences.

Volunteer Consulting Group (VCG)

VCG gives students the opportunity to get first-hand experience at consulting. VCG is a 6 week project where 6-7 students will tackle a business problem faced by a startup in the Boston/Cambridge region. Join the mailing list to learn how you can participate in this exciting event

Make the Leap

Make the Leap is one of the biggest events organized by CCM in the Spring semester. It brings together a panel of ex-graduate students who have embarked on careers at top consulting firms. Make the Leap discusses the transition process from graduate school to life as a consultant. More specifically, the moderated panel addresses why and how to make the transition, how an advanced degree fits into a consulting career, the application process, and interview tips, among other interesting topics

MIT vs. Harvard Case Competition

Held for the first time in Summer 2008, this event offers graduate students from Harvard and MIT the opportunity to work in teams on a business case under the mentorship of professional consultants. This 10-day event begins with a Kickoff presentation of the case, followed by team mentoring sessions with consultants and industry experts. The final presentation is a day-long event showcasing the top Harvard and MIT teams. The event generally consists in 80 participants and more than 150 attendees

Case Practice

Case practice events are a great opportunity for students to get ready for interviews. They consist of presentations from consultants and one-on-one practice with other CCM members

Lunch with Consultants

Lunch with Consultants brings together a small group of students with consultants. This is perfect for opportunity to get a taste of what is involved in consulting, or simply to keep up to date with the interesting news stories from the business world


Consultant Interview Series

Are you interested in hearing about consulting from the perspective of consultants who have made the leap from a Ph.D. to consulting? In our Consultant Interview Series (CIS), we interview former Ph.D. students about their experiences as consulants and interview preparation.
