Graduate Consulting Club is a student association for students affiliated with the University of Basel and ETH Zürich in Switzerland. Our goal is to enable students to successfully transition from graduate schools to a management consulting career. Alongside networking events and career guidance, we provide a platform to prepare for interviews and for a future in consulting.

Contact Us

We provide opportunities for our members to explore management consulting in Switzerland and abroad, to network with people from the industry and most importantly, to prepare for a case interview. We make the transition to management consulting easier by providing case material, literature and connections to form a case partnership.

We have a regular weekly case workshops in Basel and Zürich. As part of our workshop we often invite guest consultants to coach our members. Our guest consultants are practicing consultants working in Switzerland. For our other events and workshops in Zürich, please visit our Event schedule.

Membership is free of charge. However, given that we offer a large database of cases for practice and a sizeable library of audio and literature support for the consulting career of our members, we kindly ask them for a small donation to help us maintain and expand this treasure trove of resources.

Active memberships are offered to currently enrolled graduate students of the University of Basel and ETH Zürich (master students and PhD candidates). For more information and registration, please visit our Membership section.

Testimonials


Success starts with us.

Testimonials


Success starts with us.

“The GCC provided me with the perfect bridge to transition from engineering to consulting. You can practice cases with motivated fellow students coming from diverse STEM fields, and build upon the valuable resources the club provides under the guidance of experienced workshop leads. Take your chance, have fun, and jump into the challenging field of consulting!” - Krisztina Nagy, Business Analyst at Deloitte

"We assigned GCC the challenging task of coming up with our next digital product. GCC meticulously planned and executed all the different phases of the project including: (1) a detailed project plan, (2) market research, (3) development of prototype ideas, (4) refinement of the prototype ideas with us and (5) presentation of the finalised strategy and product design. The entire project evolved exactly as planned and GCC proved to be a dependable partner." - Telejob, ETH PhD-student organisation for digital recruitment

"The GCC is the perfect place for ETH students to learn more about the consulting industry. Members share with each other their experience on how to apply and to prepare for the interviews. The very friendly and collaborative culture of the GCC makes it a great environment to progress and be successful in the recruiting process. I strongly recommend to anyone interested in consulting to join the GCC!" - Vincent Giorgis, incoming Associate at the Boston Consulting Group

"The weekly meetings gave me the chance to practice for the job interviews with motivated partners and a large catalogue of preparation material, otherwise inaccessible. All of this occurred in a friendly and open-minded environment, where newcomers were always welcome. I am strongly satisfied with my experience at the GCC. Thanks to their network, to the weekly practice with a group of motivated people and good case studies, it gave me a strong aid to start my career in the consulting world."  - Tommaso Sacco, Business Analyst at Arthur D. Little

"Having a stream-lined application process, case resources and workshops to practice for my interviews made all the difference - I definitely wouldn't have gotten the job if it hadn't been for the GCC's support."Lydia Braunack-Mayer, Analyst at IQVIA
