Hello everyone,

I am currently studying BBA LLB (integrated course) in the number 1 pvt University in India. I am trying to find my way into management consulting.

It would be great to know, how people belonging to the law field made it into consultancy.

Thanks in advance

Hello Siddhant,

I think, your studies are a decent foundation to get into consulting. However, firms are also looking for key skills like: logical thinking and problem solving, analytical capabilities, leadership, ability to work under pressure and advanced communication skills. The best way to develop these skills is through relevant internships and extracurricular activities, try to demonstrate initiative and involvement in team based work.

Regards,

Evelin

Hi Evelin

Thank you for providing me your opinion. I am trying my best to get relevant internships for consulting this year. In furtherance, could you elaborate on what kind of extracurricular activities you are referring to ?

Thanks

Hi Siddhant,

Completely agree with Evelin. 

What people usually fail to say is that you can probably go into management consulting from any type of course - I know people who did Masters and PhD's in Chemistry, Physics, Archaeology, History and so on and have become management consultants.

Getting transferable skills like Evelin mentioned, ccombined with showcasing this in some sort of internship (doesn't have to be a consulting internship) will be useful. Having experience demonstrating these skills will probably help you have a better chance to get into management consulting.
