"BusinessOne provided me with an opportunity to develop the hard skills I was lacking, from structuring problem questions, conducting focus groups and building slide decks. More importantly, I got to work and learn with talented people to construct a creative expansion strategy for our client."
- Katie Jones, Student Consultant
Role of A Student Consultant
There are three aspects to being a student consultant:
Drive outcomes in your consulting project
Student consultants are the driving force behind the consulting project for our startup clients. Working in a team of six students, consultants are expected to drive analyses, seek feedback and information from their client and finally, make and test final recommendations. The consulting team's objective is to create positive impact for their client within the project's scope.
Grow at our workshops and networking events
We ensure our consultants are learning and growing via a series of educational workshops and networking evenings. Through providing students the opportunity to mingle with our professional partners and startup clients, we ensure consultants are professionally developing.
Participate in our social community
It's also great fun! We are one of the most socially active organisations on-campus from our weekly drinks to our welcome dinners to Semester getaways. By joining us as a student consultant, you are welcomed into our community of the most talented multidisciplinary students at your University. Make the most of this opportunity and make new friends!
Applications at the University of Sydney are open now!
