”My time at SSCG was one of the best learning experiences I have had so far. Not only did I receive training from top consulting firms, which helped me to hone in on my analytical and strategic skills, I also got to work together with a fantastic team of diverse individuals, each bringing with them unique approaches and different skill sets. Our projects came from a variety of sectors, meaning that I was able to gain insights to multiple industries. In addition to this, SSCG gave me the opportunity to be part of projects with social impact, which I found especially rewarding.”
