Academy Week Preview: Consulting Academy

Academy Week begins October 20. This intensive week immerses our first-year MBA students in the fundamentals of their focus industries, through alumni panels and group sessions, visits to leading companies in the field, and professional development enhancing activities. This week, our second-year MBA students will revisit last year's Academy Week, to give you an idea of what to expect.

Today Sahil Sandhu, MBA ‘15, shares Academy Week highlights as a student in the Consulting Academy. In the Consulting Academy, our board of advisors includes names from some of the world's leading consulting firms, including Accenture, AT Kearney, Deloitte, EY, and McKinsey & Company.

Which companies did you visit during Academy Week?

Consulting Academy week was different. We had many consulting firms on campus for presentations, networking, and of course happy hours.

Here are the companies I interacted with: A.T. Kearney, Kalypso, Bain, Accenture, EY, Cummins, Direct Supply, and Deloitte.

Which was your favorite company? Why?

My favorite company experience was Deloitte. Deloitte was here for a day and we got the opportunity to interact with practitioners to understand their experiences and expectations. Most importantly, Deloitte conducted many mock cases, which helped simulate a critical part of consulting interviews–individual and group cases.

How did Academy Week enhance your career?

Academy Week helped me understand various consulting domains, such as technology, strategy, operations, and private equity. I was able to narrow down what I wanted to do and develop a plan for my internship search. Above all, I got the opportunity to interact with multiple firms and build a network with Kelley alums.

What was the most fun part about Academy Week?

I truly enjoyed the session by Brian Hoppe from AT Kearney. It was an informal session and we all learned what it means to be a consultant. The social hours also were a great way to relax and learn more about Kelley alums and my peers. And yes, these events were a lot of fun.
