Where the jobs are—in management consulting

Magement consultant solving a problem

To find a job in this hot industry, it helps to be armed with a college degree from an Ivy League school or other top-tier college. Your degree can be from almost any discipline. However, degrees most in demand for management consulting are in business, economics, finance, mathematics, science, and engineering.

The reason you need a diploma in management consulting is due to the nature of the job. Consultants are hired to improve a business or department. In this role, you’d analyze that business and make recommendations to management.

But management consulting is more than just making studies and giving advice. Your resume must reflect experience as a team leader or member. You must also be able to demonstrate excellent oral and written communications skills in order to express your ideas and to write proposals and recommendations. Employers also look candidates who are innovate, can work under pressure, offer analytical skills, along with abilities to solve problems and plan.
