Spending the Summer in Chicago with L.E.K. Consulting

Entering my MBA program at Carnegie Mellon University’s Tepper School of Business, I sought an internship in consulting because I believed that it would allow me to combine my engineering problem solving skills with the passion for business growth that I developed as a product manager.

My Summer Associate Internship Experience in San Francisco

I joined the L.E.K. San Francisco team during the summer prior to my final year as an undergraduate Business Administration major at the UC Berkeley Haas School of Business. My choice to pursue consulting was the culmination of my involvement with an on-campus consulting club and ultimately, my indecisiveness.

Summer Outings at L.E.K.

Every summer, the U.S. offices each hold a summer outing. The outing location and activities tend to change from year to year, so we rarely do the same thing two years in a row!

Prior to my summer at L.E.K. Consulting, I had zero formal consulting experience. I came from an international development background having worked at the World Bank, the Clinton Foundation, and International Union for Conservation of Nature prior to attending business school.

My L.E.K. Swap to Shanghai

From Jet Engines to Fertilizer - Making the 'Case' for Consulting

As a new associate at L.E.K., I could not be happier with the direction my life has gone in the last two months. Two months ago I knew little about management consulting, let alone L.E.K.

My L.E.K. Australia Summer Associate Internship Experience

I applied for the L.E.K. Summer Associate program in my penultimate year of my Science degree at Melbourne University as I felt this was the best way to find out if consulting was the right career choice for me straight out of university. Read about my experience in this latest L.E.K. Advisor post.
