Introduction to Consulting: A Case Walkthrough with Avascent

Have you ever wondered how companies make strategic decisions, get the inside scoop on their competitors, and figure out exactly what their customers want? Have you ever wondered about all that, but been especially curious about how aerospace & defense companies do it?

Answer those questions – and a few others, too – at 3pm on Friday, October 6th Monday October 9 (NEW DATE), with Middlebury ‘11.5 alum and current Avascent Senior Analyst Eoin Power. Using real examples from work Avascent has done in the world of VIP aircraft interiors (think custom-molded toilets, missile defense systems, in-flight access to new Hollywood blockbusters), you’ll walk through the typical stages of a strategy consulting project, and see how a project team structures problems, builds models, and develops recommendations.

RSVP here to let us know you’re coming, or just plan to be there!

Also, you’re invited to have a 20 minute 1-1 chat with Eoin about his work, career path and tips for applying.  It’s first come, first serve, on the same day, Monday October 9 between 9-12.  Sign up here for your slot!

If any of this sounds interesting enough you’d like to get paid to do it, good news – we’re hiring!  Apply on Handshake for summer intern and full-time Analyst roles.
