There are so many incredible organizations at the University of Michigan, and this often makes it difficult for prospective members to discern between them. Below, we convey what we believe makes BOND unique as a consulting group on campus.
We are the original undergraduate consulting organization at the University of Michigan. Thirteen years of institutional knowledge has enabled us to consistently enhance both our project experience and professional development resources while establishing a well-respected brand among industry professionals.
The opportunities available to BOND members are truly exceptional. Our members have consistently placed into careers of their choices, joining top consulting, finance, and tech firms, or even starting their own multi-million dollar startups. In addition to traditional junior-year internship and full-time recruiting, BOND has a strong track record of sophomore internships as well.
One of the aspects in which BOND prides itself most is the close-knit and supportive community our members form. Through biweekly restaurant-catered meetings, monthly social events, and our annual Chicago trip, we strive to be a family as much as a consulting group.
A characteristic of our work that makes BOND unique is our focus on impact. We work only with the top executives of local small businesses. And we never charge our clients. This approach enables our recommendations to be immediately actionable and for us to see the results of our work in the local economy.
Our organization boasts an all-time Ross acceptance rate of over 95%. While matriculation into the business school is by no means a requirement or an expectation of being in BOND, we realize that many of our members have this as a personal goal. For those individuals, BOND provides the experiences and support necessary to help make this goal come to fruition.
