In addition, the internship provides some unique learning opportunities throughout its duration. The Friday morning meetings were helpful to expand my knowledge of business concepts, disciplines, or aspects of business that are sometimes ignored. The professionals at the BBCG are also incredible resources that are willing to help the interns provide quality work, but also develop as business professionals. The primary focus isn't always to enforce and promote deadlines, but rather to ensure the interns are ready and able to perform the tasks required of them. In this way, deadlines will almost always be met because the intern has become capable and learned the skills necessary to complete the tasks on time and with significant quality. Therefore, the BBCG provides a challenging experience that will benefit the intern through quality learning and development of core business qualities." - Matt Howard, Summer 2010 Student Analyst

Consulting Group Experience: "Being a Butler Business Consulting Group intern is unlike any other internship experience. As a student analyst, I have been exposed to a range of company projects that have challenged me to think outside of the textbook "box" and develop processes and models for company improvement. I joined the Consulting Group hoping to improve my cash flow analysis skills and technical skills, but I've gained so much more. Beyond developing the analytical skills, I've learned to create modeling tools for clients in myriad business scenarios. The ability to see the impact of my work is also very encouraging. The project managers really encourage us to take leadership in our projects while still providing a great support system. I'm encouraged that my experience here will most definitely set me ahead of the game in my upcoming career." - Erin Weybright, Summer-Fall 2010/Spring 2011 Student Analyst

Consulting Group Experience: "The Butler Business Consulting Group successfully provides an environment for mentorship and personal development. Because all project managers believed in and adhered to an open-door policy, I was able to utilize their experiences and knowledge to gain guidance on both client-facing projects and on my own personal inquiries. In addition, the project managers were able to facilitate my professional self-development through providing multiple opportunities to utilize my strengths while enhancing my capabilities. Overall, I would recommend the BBCG as a quality internship opportunity for Butler students to experience personal as well as professional growth." - Jesse Wolfe, Spring 2012 Student Analyst

Consulting Group Experience: "I currently teach children aged 2-16 in Taiwan. Although the Consulting Group is not in the business of education, I still benefited from my experience there. You may ask, how does a consulting firm in Indiana prepare you for teaching in Asia? Well, the Consulting Group assisted me through professional development trainings throughout my semester. One of the trainers was actually an alumni currently teaching English in Spain. She was able to answer questions and put a face to the experience. I love the day to day adventure here and was adequately prepared because of my conversations with a former Consulting Group Alumni." - Bethany Yonker, Spring 2009 Student Analyst
