Eckhart Consulting was founded in 2002 by a group of University of Chicago students who wanted to gain experience in approaching strategy consulting cases. Today, EC has grown into one of the premier pre-professional student groups on campus. EC offers University of Chicago students the opportunity to tackle complex projects for real clients. Members learn data analysis techniques, build business intuition, develop their presentation style, and gain experience interacting with clients. In addition, consultants are exposed to skill development trainings, gain valuable insights from advisors working at professional consulting firms, and have access to a diverse network of EC alumni working in a variety of professional fields.
