MIPC Students in the classroom

Mentoring & Immersion Program for Consulting

We lead by example in how to do business...

Founded in 2015 at the George Washington University School of Business, the Mentoring and Immersion Program for Consulting (MIPC) sought to bridge the gap between the classroom and the real world of consulting.  A strong Community of Practice, MIPC is a selective and rigorous two-year experiential program that emphasizes our three pillars, Interview, Employer, and Client (IEC) Readiness. MIPC partners with mentors from myriad consulting sectors from reputable firms like McKinsey, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Deloitte, and IBM, to name a few. Mentees have the opportunity to learn from the mentors in weekly seminars based on hands-on knowledge, real-world application, and case-based consulting practice.

The two- year program is cyclical, with second-year MIPC students acting not only as mentors to first-year students, but as consultants to relevant projects within the university and the surrounding community. After graduation, participants serve as employer mentors, bringing their new unique perspectives in consulting back to the program.

As a Community of Practice, we’ve partnered with stakeholders such as employers, faculty, GWU research and innovation centers, and school leadership to extend and share knowledge across multiple channels to further the initiatives of all stakeholders.
