An evening which saw budding Consultants at HEC  Paris come together to interact with the Managing Director at Accenture, Paris

The HEC Consulting Club launched the CONSULTING INSIDE-OUT Speaker Series on 22nd February 2013. The first of this series was marked with a speaker session by Mr.Nicolas Monsarrat, Managing Director at Accenture Paris.

Mr.Monsarrat has 21 years of experience in Management Consulting at Accenture, and specializes in the Public Service, Government, Media & Entertainment & Communications Sector. An engineer by education, he joined Accenture in 1992 in an Analyst’s role, and has constantly been climbing up the professional ladder to now become the Managing Director at Accenture.

With his vast experience, he gave us an insight into the management consulting culture as well as the Vertical & Horizontal organization Structure of the Consulting team at Accenture.  He also gave us vivid examples of two of his past projects in the French Public Sector& Telecommunications Sector, giving us a clear idea about the ‘start-to-end’ phase of a Consulting project at Accenture.

Mr.Monsarrat answered several questions from a crowd thirsty for more knowledge about pursuing consulting as a career. He also provided tips for career switchers as well as geographically transcending into the Consulting sector. The presentation ended with a bang when he showed us a video about NYC 311 – Accenture’s Public Service Call Solution, which has revolutionized the working of the New York City government in answering the queries of New Yorkers.

Here’s a  first hand account of one of our recent MBA Speaker Series as reported by current student Julie Haspeslagh (Class 2014):

An MBA at HEC Paris is about learning new things and developing yourself: the more you know the more your dare! The modular education system allows us to choose those educational experiences that are best for your personal plan: specialized courses, certificates, internships or fieldwork projects. Doing all this will get you a great education… But…

… that’s not where it stops… An MBA at HEC Paris is more about meeting new people, discovering new cultures and learning about companies, businesses and career choices. One of the greatest ways to experience this is through our student run MBA clubs.
