Please contact UConnConsultingGroup@gmail.com if you are an employer and are interested in hosting a recruiting event or getting in contact with any of our members.

Highly Selective Recruiting Process

Students are screened for high performance, character and learning orientation and are put through three rounds of interviews:

  • First round application with letter of intent and resume submission
  • Second round case and behavioral interviews with senior project team members
  • Final round case interviews with student Managing Director and two Alumni advisors (trained interviewers from McKinsey, Bain and BCG)

Students are then rated against standardized behavioral competencies and chosen for offers to join the group.

Our acceptance rate is 18%

High Performance Consulting Project Team Experience
