CSTATE consulting

Creating Symbiotic Relationships

CState is a program within CSU’s College of Business that allows students to learn the fundamentals of Consulting while serving real-life clients. This program allows for value added on both-ends: students leave with a valuable experience, while clients have received world-class business advice for virtually no cost at all. In addition, the students and clients have just added each other to their professional network, which opens the door for further employment or mentorship.

Students: Jumpstart your college career

“The Consulting Practicum has provided me with an experience that no other undergraduate course has afforded me. The opportunity to complete real work for a real client has given me incredible insight into the consulting world.”

Clients: Gain perspective while giving back

“It’s an amazing program because I am gaining immediate value from the students, but I can also see them learning throughout the process.”
