Toronto Consulting Practicum – Apply Now!
Starting Summer 2012, UTCA will be proudly sponsoring the Toronto Consulting Practicum (TCP). Together with our new partner, we strive to actively provide the best-in-class management consulting related services to all U of T students.
UTCA is a student run organization that aims to expose U of T students to the management consulting industry. We provide high quality informational events, networking sessions, case competitions, and pro-bono consulting services with the support from the top consulting firms in the world. Now, with the addition of TCP’s case interview training component, the two organizations will be able to accommodate students who are actively trying to break into the industry.
In its pilot year, TCP aims to prepare highly qualified candidates who are ambitious, responsible, and committed to go through rigorous case practices, receive mentorship from consultants at top firms, and become familiar with the recruitment process.
This program will focus on 3rd year undergraduate students who are interested in the upcoming September full-time recruitment cycle. For more information and to apply, please visit www.tcpracticum.com. The application deadline is midnight May 11th, 2012.
