That is certainly interesting. I guess it is a viable path for some, but I still don't think you're going to see an Audit club at Wharton or Chicago anytime soon :)

Oliver Wyman is very prominent in the financial services arena - they help the bulge bracket banks with a lot of strategic and management related issues.


Terp, do you know where one could find more information on other consulting companies that do this sort of work; I've only heard of Oliver Wyman, but that could because the other consultancies do so much else that they don't emphasize this portion. Also, does OW even recruit MBAs, on their website it seems they recruit mostly out of undergrad Ives. Personally, I find that type of work to be quite intriguing. Thanks!

I apologize - I don't have any links or much other information on them. If you reached out to people in the consulting clubs at the top MBA programs, they would likely be able to provide more information. I'm not personally pursuing consulting - I plan to enter Finance.

Just want to add a new perspective regarding Big 4 accounting firms. Sure these firms are not doing strategy work as other firms like McK/BCG/Bain. They are more into Operations, Technology and Compliance work. After selling their respective consulting arms to IBM and Capgemini, they have been quiet on the consulting front. Infact this is due to the non compete agreement which was signed between IBM -PwC at the time of the acquisition. That non compete agreement got over last year. Since then , all the accounting firms are trying to re enter the consulting arena. For 5 years , PwC was offering consulting to SME category. As the non compete agreement is over , they are free to provide consulting to top tier companies.
