The idea of a student run consultancy


 

We are a company that is run by students for students. The idea of a student run consulting firm is to challenge passionate students beyond their academic curriculum by working on real live consulting projects. You are enabled to apply your theoretical knowledge from university and gain practical work experience while studying.

 

The company is completely run and managed by students. This gives each and every member the chance to take responsibility for an entire company. You develop skills that go beyond your own field of studies through training and the passion shared by other students.

 

Clients in return get creative and innovative ideas and an unbiased approach on every project. You as a student bring in fresh air and the diversity among our student body guarantees different approaches on every problem.

 

Departments


 

In addition to the consulting projects, members contribute directly to the inner workings of The Consulting Academy by taking on the day to day tasks in one of the three departments. The departments are human resources, corporate relations and operations & IT. These departments are the engine of The Consulting Academy and a lot of work is done internally to ensure maximum value for clients, partners and members, by extension.
