BDO is the fifth largest professional services network globally. It provides audit and accounting, corporate finance, tax, and advisory services and operates in 154 countries. Its advisory (consulting) services include M&A, legal, financial management, cyber security and strategy topics.
BDO Rotterdam Advisory Services invited our RCC consultants and interested students (non-members) to visit their office and crack some cases together. After an interesting presentation about the company, its values and business, a senior consultant guided students through a business case. The case was from the non-profit and government sector, which was a welcome change of the usual business cases. The company event ended with mingling around drinks and snacks. Special thanks are directed to the BDO consultants who shared their expertise with us!
To celebrate our successful trainings and consulting project, we had a full club meeting and social dinner. Some of our members are still diligently preparing for case interviews in our trainings, others are already in application processes, and some already found a job. We are proud of all of them, and wish them a lot of success for the last months of their Master’s degree!
Our bi-weekly case interview sessions (CIS) are helping ambitious RSM students prepare for their first job interviews. So far we discussed topics such as pricing, entering a new market, profit and loss, and growth strategies. After a short presentation, participating club members and non-members can ask questions and challenge the presented systems and frameworks. Afterwards they jump right into cracking mock-case interviews. This interview training gives students the needed exercise to go confident into consulting interviews and shine with expertise in solving complex issues!
This semester we have three more sessions planned:
20th April – Business Cases
4th May – Mergers and acquisitions
24th May – Complex Cases
