Who are SSCP Student Consultants?
SSCP student consultants have achieved the highest recognition for both their academic
accomplishments in Management and Business and their acumen for applying those learnings.
Members of the course have been selected through a rigorous assessment process that
included nominations by faculty, an honors-level GPA of 3.6 or above, and interviews
with the program’s student directors and faculty director. Each client team of is
made up of two student consultants and one student director. The student directors
have already completed at least one semester of SSCP and have already worked with
one or more clients.
Student in the SSCP program are also fulfilling academic requirements for a four-credit, 300-level business course. The consulting teams meet with their assigned clients a minimum of once every week for an hour with an established agenda; they also meet once a week in a seminar setting with the other consulting teams and their professor to discuss their consultancies and to deepen their competencies in using the tools and frameworks of strategic consulting. Both the clients and the student consultants are engaged in electronic communication and exchanges throughout the semester on a secure platform.
