On Thursday, June 14, GTE was fortunate enough to host our third guest speaker, Bobby Petrini, a consultant at Deloitte. Bobby is a graduate of Tepper School of Business, preceding Brenden and Gabe, our Operators-in-Residence, by two years. He came to GTE to speak about his background in consulting and gave the interns a taste of his work experiences.
A University of Maryland graduate and son of a small business acquirer, Bobby was drawn to business operations, soon joining Deloitte’s consulting division out of undergrad. He quickly acclimated to the job, explaining to the interns some of the projects he worked on. Being careful not to disclose any specific names or details, Bobby walked through his duties in the manufacturing and consumer product space. He spent four years at Deloitte before pursuing his masters degree at Tepper. During his MBA studies, Bobby spent time at both EQT and Oakhill Capital, exploring acquisitions and private equity. After finishing his time at CMU, Bobby returned to Deloitte and continued consulting.
The interns did not hesitate to ask about Bobby’s experiences and his path to a career in consulting. He explained the culture of a large firm and the projects across the world he has worked on. Bobby brought with him a new career perspective and valuable insight for upcoming interviews. Thanks Bobby!
