Bain Capability Network is the first company to visit the Chennai campus as part of this initiative.

Mr. Manish Goyal, Vice President of Bain Capability Network, shared his insights about how to pursue a career in consulting and addressed all the questions posed to him via students.

“The problems that you will encounter are not designed to be brainteasers, but rather to reflect the challenges that clients face. This sort of approach is better as we discuss and come up with solutions based on the client’s work. Case study learning is a substantial method through which we can have experiential learning.”
