Internship Overview

The Young Management Consultant Programme gives students aged 15-18 an immersive experience of Management Consultancy. Throughout each day, you will take part in a series of interactive role-plays, simulations, seminars and Q&A sessions, to give you an experience of life as a Management Consultant.

You will take part in a range of activities designed and led by top consultants: design your own multi-million pound project for a blue-chip client, help a major organisation adapt to a zero-carbon world, and revolutionise the customer experience at a nation-wide restaurant chain. You will also have the opportunity to interact with Management Consultants from some of the biggest names in the industry and be coached on how you can become a successful consultant, starting now.

The programme takes place over 2 days – Saturday dedicated to an immersive experience of delivering a multi-million pound project for a high-profile client, and Sunday to consulting specialisms such as Strategy and Technology. You can choose to attend either one or both days.

Attendance will give you a competitive edge in the race for the best universities, colleges and jobs in accounting, and a 'super-curricular' experience to add to your university or college applications.
