Our 2nd annual Advanced Degree Consulting Summit (ADCS) kicks off on July 22nd, 2016 and is an opportunity for graduate students to network with representatives from consulting firms and discover how the field engages the transferable skills that advanced degree candidates have in a multitude of industries. Whether you are graduating within the quarter or a first-year graduate student interested in seeing what employment options are available outside of academia, the summit is a wonderful way to meet other like-minded, forward-thinking students!

Attendees also have the option to provide a 1-page resume for sponsoring firms. To submit, please send in ADCS2016_LASTNAME_FIRSTNAME.PDF format to adca@u.northwestern.edu with the subject line “ADCS 2016 resume.”
