Sector Specific

Over the years Fletcher students have made a mark in several niche consulting firms, such as in areas like the development consulting, public sector consulting, and political risk consulting sectors. As you can expect, the interviews of these firms require focused preparations, and therefore, we have collated sector specific resources below for each of these sectors.

Most development impact consulting firm interviews are composed of a behavioral section and a case question. Behavioral questions are similar to the fit interviews of management consulting firms, but can include specific questions related to your interest in the development impact work of the specific firms. Questions like ‘what problem do you think is most urgent to solve in the world today?’, ‘What are your innovative ideas to solve the aforementioned development issue?’ should be expected.
