At the heart of it, a consulting career is about helping companies solve problems, and from one week to the next, an MBA working in the consulting industry might be working on a wide range of business issues, for many different firms. And because the job can be so varied, MBA programs in Consulting often cover a wide range of business topics, from finance to supply chain management and business analytics. For those students looking at a career in consulting, it's also important to have solid communication skills: much of the job involves presenting, running meetings, and persuasion. 

Because this career path can be so varied, many business schools don't offer specialized MBAs in Consulting. Instead, many students opt to do general MBA programs at schools that have good connections with recruiters in the consulting industry.
