L.E.K. Europe Great Summer Fete

One fine Friday in June 2016, the London, Paris and Munich offices all descended upon Hurtwood Park Polo Club for the first ever “L.E.K. Europe Great Summer Fete” - it did not fail to live up to the hype!

Swap in Paris

I have spent the last 6 months working the L.E.K. Paris office on my second swap after a 3-month stint in Shanghai. After my first swap, I was eager to get back out on the road and see what L.E.K. Europe had to offer.

L.E.K. London Associates' Trip: Lost in Lisbon

Lisbon. The launching post for the discovery of the new world, home of stunning architectural and culinary delights and, for one weekend only, the destination of choice for the 2017 London L.E.K. associate trip.  42 Associates made the journey across to Lisbon and, although only 40 made it back initially, the trip must go down as a roaring success.

The Truth About Shanghai: My Swap Experience

I write this from the 34th floor of one of the tallest skyscrapers, on one of the busiest shopping streets (Nanjing Road), in the world’s largest city (Shanghai). The West gives China a list of superlatives so my last six months on swap here has been a test to see what life is really like behind all the hype – interspersed with casework of course...  It turns out it is pretty good!

A new partnership: L.E.K. and Partners for Youth with Disabilities

Upon entering 2017, the Community Impact Committee at L.E.K. decided that the first quarter initiative would be around health and wellness. Throughout our research to find partnering organizations, Partners for Youth with Disabilities (PYD) was one of the organizations that stood out. PYD was an incredible fit with the health and wellness initiative as they have a particular focus in supporting the strengths and abilities of youth with disabilities. Their focus on creating a positive outlook of health and wellness for everyone in the community is why we felt compelled to get involved with the organization.

Cycle for Survival

Earlier this month, L.E.K. NYC and SF joined Cycle for Survival in a fight against rare cancer. Cycle for Survival is a nationwide spinning fundraiser where 100% of all donations go directly to rare cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering.

Is an MBA beneficial for a Consultant returning to consulting?

It is 18 months since I returned to consulting following my MBA at INSEAD.  The question I am asked by many associates is “If I want to stay in consulting should I do an MBA?”

L.E.K. Consulting Plans To Snap Up 50 MBAs In 2017

Recently, L.E.K.'s Chief Talent Officer, Lauren Reddy, sat down with Business Because to discuss how L.E.K. plans to actively recruit MBA's looking for strong problem-solving, teamwork, and management skills.

Transitioning from International Politics to L.E.K.

When I started at L.E.K., I wondered if my degree in International Politics (IPOL) from Georgetown had prepared me sufficiently for the challenging work ahead, or whether I instead should have studied business. In retrospect, my worries were unfounded. The learning curve of the associate job is steep and pushes the intellectual limits of every new hire regardless of major. Similar to Hagrid’s description of new students entering Hogwarts, “everyone starts at the beginning” at L.E.K.
