The Georgia Tech PhD2Consulting Club is opening up a SECOND ROUND of applications for volunteer consultant positions in our Volunteer Consulting Engagements (VCE) - summer 2017 edition. This opportunity is for paid members only (membership fees are $35)

 
About Volunteer Consulting Engagements:
In the management consulting industry, an engagement aims at providing the client with practical and actionable fact-based recommendations to address their strategic management challenges and improve their performance. A volunteer consulting engagement intends replicating a professional management consulting engagement. It is a very valuable opportunity to acquire real management consulting experience with a real client, on a real problem, with real impact and outcomes, while being mentored by professional consultants.
