Even a winter storm couldn’t stop students from the UChicago Careers in Business (UCIB) trek to Boston to visit leaders in the consulting industry. The trek kicked-off with a dinner in Boston's Financial District with representatives from Simon-Kucher & Partners, a new firm with specialization in health care and life science consultancy. Students had the chance to speak directly to the consultants and learn about how their diverse backgrounds worked to help provide varied perspectives to clients.
Companies visited and alumni hosts:
- Bain & Company | Alumni Host: Margaret Terry (AB’08)
- Simon-Kucher & Partners | Alumni Host: Shikha Jain (MBA’12)
- Analysis Group | Alumni hosts: Anjuli Uhlign (AB’13) and Ryan Hammond (AB’13)
Being able to physically spend some time in each firm greatly helped me get a feel of the work-life culture of the separate firms as well as the personalities of the people who work there. I also now am much more knowledgeable on the different ways to break into the industry as well as the paths and career development options available in consulting.” –Angel Sun (AB’16)
