    <p>Greetings, I am a <strong>third-year Journalism Major</strong> and would be sitting for placements in March 2022. I want to go for consulting interviews but have no experience and academic knowledge for the same. My strong suits are <strong>Advertising, PR, and Marketing</strong> as these areas were covered in my course. Please suggest how do I go about with my preparation for case interviews for consulting firms. Your guidance would be highly appreciated.</p>

    Strategy consulting firms with the most clients in Comm / Media / Entertainment

    communication entertainment sector media
    Most recent answer on May 22, 2020
    <p>Hello, I have had the chance to work for a top strategy boutique in Europe for the past two years. I chose it based on fit mainly and its international portfolio of clients. The boutique is quite specialized in life sciences and the industry. I didn't care about industry specialization at first as I wanted to start generalist and work for clients globally. However, I am reaching the stage where I want to specialize in an industry and thinking about switching. I know the idea of saying "go to MBB because they cover all verticals" is easy but I feel like MBB don't cover all the same verticals. I am highly interested in the media / entertainment / communication sector. I know this is covered by the "TMT" vertical, but most of the time it is highly focused on telco (for example McK is strong in Telco but not so much in media) and/or tech/digital. I am struggling to find a top consulting firms with a specialization in media (think BBC) / entertainment (think walt disney) / communication (think Havas). </p> <p>1/ Would you know in Europe of a consulting firm with a strong portfolio of clients in those areas?</p> <p>2/ Should I leave consulting and go into the industry? my gut feeling tells me those companies don't use a lot of consulting firms.</p> <p>Thanks a lot for reading and for your advice</p>
    Hi, I specialised in M&E so can answer this with some confidence. You are right in that there is generally less coverage from the big strategy houses within M&E with most focussed more on the Telco side. My ... (read entire answer)

    Key considerations in TMT (tech, media, telecom) cases

    Cases media technology telecom
    Recent activity on May 31, 2019
    <p>Hi all,</p> <p>Does someone have a "laundry list" of considerations for TMT (tech, media, telecom) cases? This could be very helpful to have a better idea of the kind of clarifying questions I should aks and the kind of complexities that could throw the entire case off. For example:</p> <p>- Compatibility -&gt; I had a case about a cell phone manufacturer showing ads. I didn't think about compatibility, so I missed that the ads could only be shown on their phones. This threw the whole case off</p> <p>- Hardware/software integration</p> <p>- etc?</p> <p>Thanks!</p>
    Hi, I recommend downloading annual reports for investors of the public TMT companies and thinking of potential considerations while reading them Best
