Road to Consulting

Rutgers Road to Consulting (RTC) is an exclusive two-year pipeline program that targets rising sophomores and juniors through case competitions, workshops, speaker events, and experiential learning to foster successful and thriving careers within consulting. As a participant in this program, you can develop soft skills and knowledge in case interviews through the rigorous hands-on curriculum that provides real-world experiences. You are also given exclusive networking opportunities to permeate the consulting field through connections and industry expertise.

Over the past year, RTC has had a successful Cohort, with many members landing internships at Deloitte, Citi, PwC, Johnson & Johnson, and more. We have partnered with companies such as Accenture and L'Oréal to provide case competitions that further develop our students' consulting capabilities. In addition, we have diverse and qualified speakers with a developed mentorship program, partnering students with talented professionals.

RTC's primary focus is fostering our cohorts to pursue internships at top firms like the Big 4, Big 3, and elite boutique consulting firms. The outcome: well-rounded candidates with all the necessary skills and experiences to succeed within the field.
