This article examines three features of the relationship between consulting firms and business schools. The discussion focuses mostly on strategy consultancies, which is where the relationship appears to be closest and the most ‘symbiotic’. It looks at the consequences of having business school graduates joining (strategy) consultancies for both the consulting firms and the business schools. It then outlines how business schools become the basic institutions connecting academe and practice.
