PhD+ Consulting 8: Practice Case Interview #8 and Data-Driven Storytelling for Consulting

Thornton Hall A238 - Rodman Room (School of Engineering)

Prior to this session, students will be asked to purchase an online module which walks them through how to convert their excel model into a simple and clear power point presentation. Once again, student volunteers will be asked to present their analysis. We will then conduct another practice case interview as well as leave some time to answer any final questions you may have.  

This session builds on the Fall 2021 sessions. Registration is open to Fall participants only.
