The Booz & Company Scholars Fund in Business was created in 2005 to honor long-time Booz executive and Tepper School of Business alumnus John E. “Jack” McGrath (MSIA 1961) and other Booz partners who attended the Tepper School and Carnegie Mellon University. Mr. McGrath has also established his own scholarship fund at the school, the Mary Anne Spellman and Jack McGrath Scholars Fund in Business.
The Booz & Company Scholars Fund in Business provides partial-tuition scholarships for MBA students in the Tepper School of Business, who have been successful academically and professionally and have exceptional leadership skills.
The skills that Tepper School MBAs acquire, which give them the ability to take an ambiguous or unstructured situation and bring structure to it, and use quantitative tools to deal with highly complex business problems, attract consulting firms. Instruction in this skill set begins during the four-week “BaseCamp” orientation program.
Approximately 31% of recent Tepper School MBAs accepted consulting positions upon graduation. Our graduates are working at many of the world’s elite consulting firms. The Tepper School Consulting Club offers a combination of workshops, seminars and personal mentoring opportunities that are designed to provide members with the tools they need to become successful consultants. In addition, Consulting Boot Camps provide the students with a glimpse into the daily life of a consultant and help to dispel any misconceptions they may have about the field.
