EDGE – The Consulting Club

Mr.Rajiv Mohapatra, one of our distinguished alumni, currently works as a Financial Risk Consultant at Capegemini. He organized a consulting boot camp on the 5th of July 2015. This was organized in order to revive one of the oldest and most prestigious clubs of IFMR, EDGE – the consulting club. The club is being revived after a period of 3 years.

The session embarked upon the various roles in today’s consulting sector throughout the world and Mr.Rajiv explained the basic nuances of the consulting industry and the kind of skillset and aptitude one needs to have to excel in this field.

We thank Mr. Rajiv Mohapatra for taking up such initiative. We hope to organize many such Boot camps in the future with the help of our dedicated alumni who have been working as consultants throughout the world.

Many current PGDM students actively participated in the session and we hope to increase the participation in such interactive sessions in the future.
