TCP introduction

Program Detail

UTCA has been proudly sponsoring the Toronto Consulting Practicum (TCP) since summer 2012. Together with our 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 TCP’s case interview training component, the two organizations will be able to accommodate senior students who are at the final stage of breaking into the industry.

TCP aims to prepare highly qualified candidates who are ambitious, responsible, and committed to go through rigorous case practices and receive mentorship from consultants at top firms. As of 2013, 40% of TCP candidates have successfully secured a job offer from a leading consultancy. For the upcoming summer program, TCP will focus on 3rd year undergraduate students who are interested in the September full-time recruitment cycle. Here is the detail of the summer session,
