Rotman School’s Impact Consulting Group leverages diverse work experience to design innovative solutions for clients

May 14, 2015

TORONTO, ON – A new group of MBA stu­dents have joined the Rot­man School of Management’s Impact Con­sult­ing Group where they will pro­vide high val­ue strat­e­gy con­sult­ing to clients at com­pet­i­tive rates.

The team com­bines a diverse range of pro­fes­sion­al back­grounds, includ­ing law, finance, retail man­age­ment, con­sult­ing, and polit­i­cal strat­e­gy, to find inno­v­a­tive ways to help their clients. “Our team has expe­ri­ence in many indus­tries and func­tions enabling us to ana­lyze prob­lems from many per­spec­tives – this will def­i­nite­ly help us design suc­cess­ful solu­tions for clients,” said Natalia Esco­bar, an incom­ing Impact Part­ner and for­mer cor­po­rate lawyer in Colom­bia.

Found­ed in 1972, Impact selects five new part­ners from the Rot­man Full Time MBA pro­gram each spring. Part­ners are select­ed based on their inte­gra­tive think­ing skills, work expe­ri­ence and entre­pre­neur­ial sen­si­bil­i­ties. The firm offers mar­ket research, strate­gic plan­ning and imple­men­ta­tion, cus­tomer and mar­ket­ing strat­e­gy, per­for­mance improve­ment, and many oth­er cus­tomized solu­tions to address a full-range of busi­ness prob­lems.

The part­ners are sup­port­ed by a Board of Direc­tors com­prised of Rot­man fac­ul­ty and indus­try pro­fes­sion­als. The team also has access to a wealth of knowl­edge from a world class fac­ul­ty and state of the art resources. “Rotman’s fac­ul­ty includes some of the most accom­plished and thought-lead­ing busi­ness pro­fes­sors in North Amer­i­ca. Their guid­ance on projects and top­ics adds incred­i­ble val­ue to client engage­ments” said Nika Stel­man, a new Part­ner and for­mer con­sul­tant work­ing out of New York City.

“On the strength of its 43 year his­to­ry, a high­ly capa­ble team of entre­pre­neuri­al­ly-mind­ed con­sul­tants, with priv­i­leged access to the exper­tise of the Rot­man fac­ul­ty, Impact deliv­ers excep­tion­al val­ue to a wide vari­ety of clients,” says Becky Reu­ber, a pro­fes­sor of strate­gic man­age­ment at the Rot­man School who chairs Impact’s Advi­so­ry Board.
