Business Focus Event: Consulting and Banking
Wed 19 October 2016, 20:00 – 21:30 BST
- Are you interested in consulting or banking?
- How can you best equip yourself to succeed?
In an informal session Dr Anthony Freeling and Laurel Powers-Freeling will share their wealth of knowledge about consulting and banking (and McKinsey in particular), offer an insight into how to succeed in these competitive fields, and be on hand to answer questions.
This event is for any Hughes Hall students who are considering careers in banking or consulting, not only those doing business degrees.
Refreshments will be provided.
