Consulting Bootcamp
Prepare for consulting recruiting with our four-week, interactive Bootcamp series

Prism Consulting Group — Consulting Bootcamp

Twice every academic year, Prism offers a four-week Consulting Bootcamp series. The program is designed to introduce students to management consulting with sessions on types of consulting case questions, how to crack case interviews, and more.

Over the course of four weeks, participants learn about market sizing strategies and get to practice guesstimate questions. Different kinds of cases and relevant analysis frameworks are discussed and our mentors go over real case prep material published by prestigious consulting firms. Prism's Consulting Bootcamp is recommended to any and all students who wish to obtain a better understanding of the consulting industry and the recruitment process of consulting firms. No experience or prior knowledge is required; we simply look for genuine interest and motivation to learn when evaluating applications.

Applications for out Bootcamp are considered simultaneously with applications to our Consulting Division.
