CCC Consulting Curriculum

Organize and prioritize
Last edited 2 minutes ago by Samuel Jin
Purpose
This check-list is compiled for those looking to learn more about consulting and strategies to successfully tackle case studies outside of GBMs. These are resources that I have found helpful as I’ve prepared for consulting recruitment. After checking off every item from this list, you will have established some comfort tackling case studies and understand more about what it means to be a consultant. Due dates are TBD and are meant to keep people on track. While the curriculum is still in development, this is a rough structure of the what the program will include. Open to suggestions and ideas!

Why Coda?
Coda is an innovative platform that will enable users to create a copy of this document so they can check off tasks. This will be the primary platform we will use for learning, discussions, and keeping on track with the curriculum timeline.
Coda can also be used for project management, scheduling, note-taking, creating websites, and more! Here is an of a UCSD Bucket List website I made using Coda.
