Women Reinventing Retail



Show us your consulting talent

Join us in Paris for a two-day workshop and training. Get to know our Partners and Consultants and spend two days learning about and re-thinking exciting strategic challenges of the global retail business.

For two days, we will ask you to demonstrate team work and creativity in finding solutions for a dedicated business model in the retail industry.

Experience the atmosphere of a consulting project and prove your consulting skills in cracking our case study. Our Consultants will provide you with input and support you in your work. You will be able to present your team‘s results to a jury of Oliver Wyman experts.

Seize the opportunity

Are you a student, recent graduate or doctorial candidate? Oliver Wyman invites you to join us in Paris on the 19th and 20th of October and take a glimpse behind the curtains of strategy consulting.

Form your own opinion on our Consultants and our exceptional firm culture. Learn what Oliver Wyman has to offer and identify your internship or consulting career opportunities. Show us that you can do it!

Our evening event will allow you to get to know our Consultants outside of a regular business setting. It will be the perfect stage for you to address any type of questions you may have!




Convince us with your solutions

Together with your team you develop innovative strategies and business models for the retail industry.

The traditional retail sector is under pressure: changing customer behaviour, increasing digitalization and numerous market entries from innovative and agile competitors reduce margins and challenge traditional business models.

For customers, online shopping means unprecedented choice, value, and convenience. For established stationary retailers, it means tough strategic choices and, in many cases, a difficult long-term outlook. Once proud market leaders now struggle for their premier market position while clever newcomers seemingly effortlessly pulverize long-standing customer relationships.

In this dynamic and competitive environment, many of our clients are looking for strategies to re-position themselves and learn from their new competitors to adapt their business models.

As a consultant, you develop innovative business models which resist those challenges and allow for future growth. With your team you assess opportunities and risks within the changing market environment for a leading stationary retailer. Further, you analyse strengths and weaknesses of the established player to then develop a new and sustainable business model.

Present your idea which combines creativity with market understanding and a good grasp of numbers to our Oliver Wyman experts. Convince us with ground-breaking and leading-edge ideas for Retail 2.0.
