UBC students of all academic years, from all faculties, with an interest in consulting, are welcome to apply to the Strategy Consulting Initiative. This program is only open to current students. Students who finish all their courses by December, but have not officially graduated, are eligible to apply.
All students are welcome to apply, but past participants typically have a general average of at least 80% or a GMAT score of 650+.
Previous work experience in consulting is not required. However, we look for students who have demonstrated leadership, initiative, teamwork, and problem solving through their prior experiences.
There is an initial application package which involves a resume, cover letter, and transcript. Students selected for the final round will complete a behavioural interview and case interview.
We typically hire a cohort of 24 students, consisting of 6 Senior Consultants and 18 Junior Consultants. The number will depend on how many companies we are able to partner with as well as the quality of the applicant pool.
We require participants to be present for certain events during the engagement period from January to April. Therefore, if are physically away for an extended period of time, you will not be able to participate. If you are on exchange in Term 1, we can make arrangements for the application process.
