Business Major Analyst Prep Student Breaks Into Consulting
When John Meah first came to us he was a sophomore with no professional experience. He wanted to pursue a career in management consulting and was exploring different opportunities to help him break into the field.
John attended University of North Carolina majoring in Business Administration. Like many individuals in college who do not possess the right technical and soft skills he was at a disadvantage compared to target school candidates. John joined our in 2020 program to develop the professional skills and experience necessary to become a top performer and secure full-time opportunities in the consulting space.
- After completing the Analyst Prep program, John received an internship at McKinsey & Company a prestige’s consulting firm.
- After his McKinsey & Co. internship he received a full-time return offered at the firm as a business analyst.
- The skills he gained in our program allowed to become a top performing intern making him stand out from his peers.
As a sophomore in college John saw very little opportunities available to him. Normally there are limited opportunities for sophomore students looking for meaningful experience investment banking or consulting internships. This means most students are left taking summer classes or poor internship that have no impact in their professional development.
John had no formal finance or financial modeling education. He also did not have relevant finance internship experience which put him in a disadvantage position when compared to other students with experience. John also lacked career guidance and needed interview prep coaching to help him develop confidence for upcoming interviews.
We provided John with our formula, which includes over 196-hour of structured training, mentoring, internship, and career development. Our system of training and mentoring gave him a transformative experience to break into management consulting.
- John received essential training in excel, accounting, valuation, and financial modeling.
- Gave him homework assignments in financial modeling, pitch book presentations and valuation that were reviewed during live classes to ensure he fully understood the course material.
- We also provided John with career training and an internship, where he received high levels of responsibilities to simulate on-the-job situations.
By the end of the program John had gained the same on-the-job skills professionals take years to develop, giving him a tremendous competitive advantage.
John credits much of his early success to our program and the valuable skill he developed which he applies on the job today.
