The Boston Consulting Group, Senior Consultant
Among many indisputable advantages of GSOM I am pleased to highlight the community, the so called “GSOM Family”, which is:
- professors, who communicate and treat students as equals, who are eager to provoke interest and to share knowledge about management using a real business case-based approach
- personnel, who is always welcoming towards students and their new ideas that move GSOM forward
- students, many of which are still my benchmarks for personal and professional development
Thanks to GSOM community, I got seriously interested in a strategic consulting career. I got a chance to participate and even win consulting companies’ case championships and later went through an internship at BCG, where I am working now.
Strong orientation towards solving business cases in teams in GSOM helped me to develop a set of soft skills, both as a “team player” and as a manager.
In addition, GSOM helped me to get an experience of exchange study in France and an internship in Germany where I familiarized myself with specifics of various international business cultures. This knowledge now helps me to understand the context and drive a communication with foreign colleagues and clients.
