What is Management Consulting?
Management consultants are professional experts who provide solutions and strategies to improve the financial and operational health of an organization. The recommendations made by management consultants are backed by large amounts of research and data.
Clients hire management consulting teams primarily as objective third-party analyzers of an organization, including businesses, government institutions, nonprofits, and more.
"Every year in consulting is like three years in the corporate world because you have multiple clients, multiple issues - you grow so much"

Why do Baylor students decide to pursue consulting?
Madeline Voss '19
"As a marketing and accounting major at Baylor, I wanted a career that provided me the opportunity to design and execute competitive and creative marketing strategies to more deeply connect a business with it’s consumers. Marketing consulting provided this opportunity because you get to work with different clients on a variety of marketing practices, providing incredible exposure to cutting edge technology and brands that you know and love early in your career. This could look like redesigning logos and advertising, creating a Superbowl ad, using data to inform more personalized messaging across social media or emails, or even reorganizing the marketing department roles and responsibilities at a client, and much more. The benefit to marketing consulting is the wide range of problems you get to solve and clients you get to interact with, all while driving incredible experiences."
