Don't just learn from the pros, work alongside them

An internship experience should grow skills, push you on real experience, and stretch you past what you thought were your limits. Strategy Sprint does just that – you get dedicated pre-project training from former MBB consultants, and then are staffed on an actual consulting engagement.

Your project leader is an MC coach and former MBB consultant, and you are one in a small team of analysts, each owning your own workstream – meaning your inputs will make or break the project. There’s nothing like the thrill of arriving at cutting-edge insights for a client that is hungry for answers.

Before Strategy Sprint, it was hard for me to imagine what the day-to-day tasks of a consultant are like. This program taught me the basic skills needed as a consultant and provided me with real-world experience putting them to use!

Training

We kick off with multiple modules of video-based, interactive training that is focused on core consulting skills like Accelerated Excel, Pyramid Principle, Data Insights, and Executive Presentations. We pair that with interactive homework exercises that will ensure that what you learn actually "sticks."

Whether you are a student or mid-career switcher, you'll gain the skills needed to succeed as a consultant.

Experience

Many organizations offer consulting classes, but when firms look at your resume, they value actual experience more.

You can't claim to have built consulting skills without, well, actually consulting. You'll run fast, so you'll make mistakes and your analysis might be messy, but you'll get feedback along the way. At the end of the week, you'll offer real-life implementable suggestions for a client that sorely needs it. Now that's the kind of experience that looks great on a resume and sounds great in an interview (heck, we'll even help you add the experience to your CV!).

Mentorship

Experience coupled with mentorship is the most powerful form of learning. That's why your small team is led by a former McKinsey, BCG, or Bain consultant. You'll have a 1:1 check-in with that consultant each day of the engagement.

Learn firsthand how an MBB consultant approaches data, manages a client, and drives a project forward.

I just did the meatiest part of a summer program at a top consulting firm and I must say, Strategy Sprint really prepped me well and helped me stand out as a top performer on my team for the workshop.

The project leader told me my approach was most similar to what they use at the firm!

Thanks so much for all your help!!
