The JHGCC’s 8 bi-weekly case study workshops at the medical campus in both fall and spring semesters allow attendees to hone the skills that consulting firms seek during the hiring process. Each attendee works through an interactive case study with more experienced members. This process teaches participants how to approach different consulting problems how to avoid the common pitfalls. It also offers students a low-pressure environment to sample whether consulting is a good fit career path for them.
