  • The program was initially developed in the Fall of 2001 at Boston College. The program consists of a presentation of a business case through a series of in-class presentations to undergraduate Juniors and Seniors. The case content focuses on consulting processes, technology solutions, and CRM concepts. The students are challenged to develop a formal response to an RFI and present their findings and solution options to a panel of Senior Managers and Partners who will assess them against a variety of factors.

  • The program is run entirely by volunteers from Deloitte. Each practitioner involved contributes many hours of their time by working with students, presenting in class, and/or organizing the logistics of the overall effort.

  • On average, more than 25 practitioners participate each semester, making it one of the largest firm activities within the local office.

Key lessons learned
Key Lessons Learned

  • After four semesters at Boston College, the following items represent the key lessons learned based on student feedback, and insights from Deloitte participants.


  • Keep the focus of the case study on approach, rather than specific solutions.

  • Schedule key deliverables and plan your approach (this is not something you can throw together at the 11th hour)


  • The Response must point to specific business problem(s)

  • The Response should not require extensive technical knowledge (systems, hardware, etc.)

  • The Response should not contain too much extraneous information, as this can be detrimental to communicating your primary messages
