Purdue University Consulting Club

Mission

The Purdue University Consulting Club’s (PUCC) goal is preparing Purdue graduate and undergraduate students for success in management consulting companies.

The Purdue University Consulting Club (PUCC) provides the students of Purdue University the opportunity to gain understanding and exposure to the consulting industry. PUCC provides its members opportunities for academic development and professional development, and resources required to prepare for a career in consulting through the following:

  • Resume workshops
  • Case Interview practice sessions (Twice a month)
  • Professionally led Case Interview workshops (About 10 annually)
  • Case competitions (More than two)
  • PowerPoint and Excel Sessions
  • Guest speakers from the industry (Five or more annually)
  • City Treks
  • Exclusive access to consulting career guide and CaseBook.

The club aims to provide its members with opportunities to meet and interact with leading consultants from the top consulting companies in the world. This helps the students explore the various career paths available to consultants at different points in their careers. The club will also arrange various networking events to enable students to interact with the consultants in an informal atmosphere and provide them with a better understanding of the industry.

Additionally, the club will help students with acquiring the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in the consulting recruiting and interview process. To this end, it will arrange mock interviews with second-year students and industry personnel. It will also provide members with resources such as critical resources and access to case books of other leading business schools.

PUCC is also in the process of setting up a student-run consulting company – Purdue Business Advisory Services to provide the club members real-world and hands-on experience in consulting.

* Students interested in consulting as a career are strongly encouraged to get in

touch with the executive board members directly through social media or email. Keep in mind that it gets really busy once school start, so jump start your professional development by working out the plan early.

For more information about the club, contact the board directly or check out our profile within Purdue University.
