Our Mission: To help Foster MBA students learn about, prepare for, and secure high quality career opportunities in consulting
Our Vision: To establish the Foster MBA program as a premier source of consulting talent on the West Coast
The Foster Consulting Society (FCS) is a student organization for Foster MBA students and with about 150 active members is the largest MBA club on campus. Over half of the full-time MBA students at Foster are members of the FCS. The FCS has found success in providing student members with invaluable professional and personal development. FCS has also provided employers an engaged and talented group of students from which to recruit and hire.
The FCS offers its student members 3 distinct value propositions:
1) Education: We strive to help our members learn what consulting is, the differences between various national and local consulting organizations, and what working in consulting is like.
2) Preparation: One of our club’s most valuable resources is providing members the opportunity to prepare and practice for case interviews. Almost all consulting firms and many other organizations use case interviews as an evaluative measure of how well applicants can think about business problems. We also provide members with training in how to be a successful consultant after they land an internship or full-time job.
3) Networking: We offer events throughout the year that are hosted by consulting firms or where current consultants are invited to join. Members are given the opportunity to network with Foster alumni and others working in consulting.
