The Academy


Due to the high level of exposure and tailored support, the Consulting Summer Academy has a limited capacity. Consequently, students must apply and are not guaranteed a place.  However, to maximise your chances of securing a place here’s some key information:

  • If you are interested in getting a place on the programme, register using the link below to receive updates and information on upcoming support events:


  • Successful applicants need to demonstrate a basic-good understanding of consulting and a good level of commercial awareness. This is assessed via two questions which require a video response.

    Question 1: “Your client is CookieCo - a well-known bakery in Country X who produce batches of chocolate chip cookies to sell to customers on-site - and they would like your help to understand why sales have been declining. During your first site visit you notice that there is a queue out of the door, with customers waiting for up to 30 minutes to purchase a box of the freshly baked cookies. What three things would you like to investigate to understand the cause of the decline?”

    Question 2: SEO partner firms include L.E.K Consulting, PA Consulting, Deloitte, Charles River Associates, FTI Consulting, McKinsey, Capgemini Invent, Dalberg, Capco, OC&C, and Capital Economics. Which of these firms would you most prefer to work for and what makes you want to work there?
