On September 27, IE Talent & Careers provided us with a great opportunity to learn about the leading Consulting firm Oliver Wyman and network with senior staff from the company, to get an overview of the sector, such as what does a day in the life of a Consultant look like. This event, attended by 40 IE students, was conducted by three incredible speakers including a former IE University Alumni.

All speakers agreed that what surprised them about Oliver Wyman the most was the culture. The opportunity to have a solid team focus in disrupting, creating and achieving amazing results, as well as fulfilling projects around the globe and the opportunity to work across different industries are just some of the things that they mentioned.
