The final requirement of Consulting Field Project course is for each team to participate in the McKinsey Cup Competition. Teams present their project summary as well as their findings and recommendations to a panel of judges who evaluate each presentation based on its analytical rigor and content. The judges narrow the field of competitors to three teams that advance to a final round of competition. Finalist teams present their project summaries, findings, and recommendations to another panel of judges who provide feedback before the winner is decided by faculty, administrators, staff, and fellow students in attendance.
