The consulting industry is a unique in many ways. Both lucrative and fast-paced, consultants attract many MBA graduates to its competitive playing field. But like many other industries, it comes with its own basket of stereotypes. In order to have a more fair analysis of the industry, we put together an infographic – Consulting by the Numbers – in an effort to illustratively and clearly explain certain industry statistics.
