In my opinion, the description of Management Consultant provided in the VETASSESS Occupational Information Sheet is quite limited. It seems inadequate to evaluate the wide range of businesses/functions that management consulting encompasses.

Specifically, I want to enquire if anyone in this group has got a positive assessment for MC having worked in financial advisory. In financial advisory, we are typically involved in raising capital, restructuring their finances, undertaking enterprise valuations or providing M&A support.

I am not sure VETASSESS (if it sticks to its definition in the strictest sense) will be able to categorise this as MC. Rather it may call it investment banking - which it is but certainly not mutually exclusive of MC.

I would argue that a financial adviser advises clients not on operations or process but rather on the client's financing and growth.

Any thoughts or insights?

Thanks.
They are way too strict, if they just think a little that it's financial adviser they will likely come back with a negative assessmet, I firmly believe.

Thanks. I suppose the best chance one has to justify their position is during the call from VETASSESS officer.

Would be good to hear about experiences of others.

What do you mean by a call from officer, does they conduct an interview.. can anyone provide an insight on this ?

Btb, My job role is Business modelling analyst- more into operational business modelling - helping client to determine a2z requirement of business in numbers.. like staff requirement, capex, funding, forecasting sales by market share, preparing manufacturing/cogs workings, building dashboard and various scenarios, etc are my field of work. Does anybody disagree in relating it to MC ?

I don't think anyone here would, but my guess is VETASSESS very well might.

Lol, but I found that the skills which they are asking are 60% matching to the current role which I do in one of the Big4 firms. Below is the sneak peek of it:

providing advisory services to business leaders (e.g. senior managers and chief executives) about their organisation for the development of objectives, strategies and plans aimed at achieving customer satisfaction and the efficient use of client organisati ons' resources.
Analysing and evaluating current systems and structures of the organisation and where required, advising on business restructures and turnarounds.
Directing clients towards more efficient organisation and developing solutions to organisational problems.
Discussing business and organisational shortcomings with clients.
Preparing and recommending proposals to revise methods and procedures, alter work flows, redefine job functions and resolve organisational problems.
Assistimg with implementing approved recommendations, issuing revised instructions and procedure manuals, and drafting other documentation
Ensuring that assigned business analysis activities are conducted within agreed timeframes and cost parameter s, ensuring that identified solutions provide efficiencies in business

Well I owned a management consulntancy llc (EU, nothing shady or questionable about it), and even I got a negative assessment... sooo... like I said they're a tough nut to crack.

Someone here needed follow up interviews who was a mangement consultant at a big 4 company. It's not the best system.

Hi,

Please for the ones who did the Management Consultant interview.

Do u still remember the types of questions? is it only about MC duties?

how long does it take? I heard that it might reach 2 hours.

Is that correct?

Please advice with the MC tips and tricks.

thank you so much

Well, my understanding is that a telephonic interview is part of the assessment process. Can anybody confirm this please?
