"Management consulting" strikes many as a rather nondescript phrase. You've probably interacted with a wide variety of people who call themselves "consultants" -- whether it be a salesperson, financial representative, or business analyst. The phrase "management consulting" is more precise, referring to the industry and practice of providing guidance to management in order to improve the performance of organizations.
The client organizations are typically businesses, but management consultants also advise governmental agencies and nonprofit organizations. A basic understanding of the commonalities and different types of management consulting firms will help job seekers navigate through the milieu of management consulting career options.
