Overview

The Young Management Consultant Weekend 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.

    COVID-19 Group

    We do not anticipate any Covid-related issues preventing us from delivering the in-person programme. Any government guidance on Covid-related safeguarding (such as the wearing of masks and social distancing) will of course be adhered to. We have managed to successfully deliver in-person programmes during the Covid-19 pandemic (including during the summers of 2020 and 2021), with excellent feedback. We are therefore highly experienced in giving students a fantastic experience even with social distancing rules in place.

    In the unlikely event that the in-person programme is cancelled because of Covid-19 then students will have two options: i) move to the next in-person date; ii) move to the ‘Live Online’ version of the programme you selected and be refunded the difference in price. (If you pay via credit because you postponed a previous booking then the credit note will be reissued to you in full).
