Our mission

The mission of Brown Consulting Club is to be a fully student-run organization that:

Prepares students for careers in consulting through real projects

 Club members will have the opportunity to work on semester-long consulting projects with real companies to learn about the field and what it means to be a consultant. These concrete experiences will help students understand the field and hone their skills.

Meaningfully grows companies and addresses their research needs

A primary goal is the Brown Consulting Club is to have a meaningful impact on companies by providing extremely high-quality consulting work and helping to answer difficult questions.

Genuinely values increasing accessibility to the consulting industry

BCC was founded to provide resources and opportunities to students interested in consulting. BCC constantly strives to improve equity and inclusion both in BCC as well as the consulting indsutry. We value differences in student backgrounds and perspectives; when every member is empowered, we're able to critically solve challenges to create meaningful impact.

Is pre-professional and acts as a liaison between students and the field of consulting

In addition to holding education sessions that teach students how to prepare for case and behavioral interviews, the Brown Consulting Club will bring consulting firms on campus for networking events and case competitions to will help students and members gain access to the firms as well as connect firms to a pool of students who are interested and experienced in the field of consulting.

Our commitment to diversity, equity, & inclusion

Management consulting, an industry that is known for its high earnings potential and unique professional and cultural prestige, has historically been a mechanism for those with privilege to maintain their societal status. Inaccessible application processes, recruiting exclusively within “prestigious” schools, and a broader lack of representation in the industry mean that people from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds often face prohibitively high barriers to entering the industry. Selective consulting groups at prestigious universities — a category that BCC squarely falls into — run a high risk of exacerbating this problem by providing opportunities for the white, wealthy, and otherwise privileged at the expense of people from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds.

As a pre-professional student organization, BCC strives to make consulting — both in our own club and in the industry at large — as barrier-free as possible. BCC and its Equity & Inclusion Committee actively work to further the inclusion of traditionally underrepresented groups by creating and distributing educational resources, partnering with identity groups on campus, working with identity-focused nonprofits, providing experiential opportunities to the larger student body, and eliminating accessibility barriers in our own recruitment process. We are committed to not only growing and bettering ourselves, but also to listening and amplifying the voices of marginalized communities, both in and outside of the club.


We would like to encourage the rest of the Brown community to join our continual commitment to enacting positive change in Providence and any other space we might find ourselves in by learning and supporting organizations doing the work, including the following:
