Adriana Ortiz ’20

MBA
Internship: Consultant, Boston Consulting Group
Industry: Consulting

I interned with the Boston Consulting Group. I was assigned to a big strategy case for a food services company. It was very quantitative work, and I was nervous, because I don’t have a quantitative background. There’s no way I could’ve handled this case before my first year at Yale SOM and the core curriculum.

I’m switching from consulting to banking. This is the point when I’m able to make a career pivot, and the support network to do it at Yale SOM is incredible.

It’s not always easy to work with people from different backgrounds, but the GBS has shown me that when you build those skills your team can develop much more valuable, relevant results for the client.

Yale hands a microphone to people you might not otherwise get a chance to hear from. I had a chance to meet with Andrew S. Winston, who co-authored the book ‘Green to Gold’ with Professor Daniel C.
