GT PhD2Consulting Club sponsors have the unique opportunity to positively impact the future careers of Georgia Tech PhD students.  Corporate sponsorship provides an avenue for our members to connect and engage with consulting firms. Sponsors can introduce their firms through information sessions and workshops, receive campus publicity during club events, and have exclusive recruiting access to club members.  

Sponsorship funds support club members by providing event funding, advertising, building a club library, professional coaching and other activities. The executive board of GT PhD2CC strives to continually improve the experience and skills for our club members.  With the assistance of corporate sponsors, we can grow our organization and become a better resource for Georgia Tech PhD students seeking careers in consulting.

McKinsey & Company was one of the first consulting firms to recognize the contributions of those without traditional business training, and actively recruit candidates with advanced professional degrees (APDs). Today, nearly half of McKinsey consultants have a doctorate (PhD), law (JD, LLB), medical (MD), or other non-MBA degree.

Some APD consultants leverage their training in related fields; for instance, many doctors now work in McKinsey's Pharmaceutical & Medical Products or Healthcare Solutions Practices. Others use the opportunity to explore new industries and functions, leveraging their invaluable experience to continue growing both personally and professionally.

Regardless of their background, APD consultants have the chance to work with the world's most influential organizations in solving problems and making a real difference — whether in the private, public, or social sector — and the skills they develop become a tremendous catalyst for future opportunities, both at McKinsey and beyond.
