What is CState?
CState is composed of the Consulting Practicum and the Consulting Club. The Consulting Practicum is a 3-credit, semester-long course that allows students to consult for an organization of their choice. It is 100 percent project based – no homework, quizzes or tests. It is COVID-friendly, meaning that you can complete this practicum from anywhere while logging into Teams. The Consulting Club allows students to meet with other like-minded students and faculty members to learn more about consulting and explore their options within the field.
What value will you gain?
Transferable Job Skills
Students acquire skills like data analytics, inter-team communication, leadership, and persistence. You will also get exposed to managing long-term projects and researching current business trends. These skills are sought after by employers and require meaningful experiences.
Students will learn how to facilitate strong relationships with their clients while networking and collaborating with experienced consultants from Deloitte, Accenture, KPMG, and our other partners.
Apply Specific Knowledge
Students in the consulting practicum come from different concentrations and backgrounds, which means that they all take unique approaches to solving problems. Your individual experiences can help your consulting team analyze a real business problem and find a solution that fits.
Add Real Value
The organizations participating in Consulting Practicum have a real business dillemma that they need help solving. Students who have taken the practicum have added life-long value to organizations, which is a rare experience to have in undergrad.
