This course helped me get promoted! It provides a framework to communicate complex business problems in a clear and concise manner. Iā€™d recommend it because I want more people to understand M.E.C.E.! It is also something I may recommend to people who are working for me or are trying to build businesses cases in a professional setting. 10 out of 10, would recommend!

Andrew, Sales Leader

"This course gave me actionable tools that I can apply immediately in my work to make it more effective. Key consulting principles were taught offline and then brought to life through a few weekly interactive group sessions that really helped the material to sink in, while giving me a chance to share my work and get feedback - great format, and great value. Paul is an enthusiastic and knowledgeable teacher, and very willing to help! "

- Lois, Vice President, Humanitarian & Development, Mastercard

"The StrategyU strategy toolkit is one of the main reasons I have a job in consulting. This course will teach you about everything you need to know not only to succeed in interviews, but also on the job as well. From understanding the Pyramid Principal to making sure my analysis is MECE, I turn back to the strategy toolkit every day in my job at Bain."

Jeff, Consultant, Bain & Company

"Paul's ability to break down the "secrets" of strategy consulting in a way that made the concepts easy to understand and accessible was powerful. As someone leading a firm as a CEO, it helped me re-think how I frame discussions with clients and how I think about building my business. This course was invaluable in the discussions I have with my co-founder and how we think about our work."
