We would like to welcome you to the Kelley Direct Consulting Association (KDCA).

Our mission is to provide you as a new member of the KDCA opportunities to connect with our ever expanding network of students, alumni, and industry professionals through engaging and empowering experiences. Our ultimate goal is to inform you about the consulting industry and prepare you for a successful transition and career in consulting.

Throughout the academic year we will have a variety of events that will help you find your interests in consulting, prepare for the interview process, and develop connections with industry professionals from various consulting firms.
