A survey of MBA students from the country’s top B-schools conducted by Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and Association of Management Consulting Firms (AMCF) has some interesting insights. The survey concluded that 84 per cent of Indian B-School students choose consulting as a professional choice. This decision by students comes on the back of global engagement opportunities and good mentoring programs given by consulting companies. Similarly, 64 per cent of the students opined that the location of the consulting company was not an important influencer. Out of those, 54 per cent respondents prefer strategy consulting as a career.
The survey was conducted interviewing 1,000 students across the ten B-schools in India. They were asked about their interest in consulting as a career, what influenced their opinions about consulting, and their perceptions about specific issues, including work-life balance, and career options post-consulting.
