Leeds Social Impact Consultants is an MBA student-run consulting service for social enterprises and local companies. The program runs in the fall semester annually.
Leeds Social Impact Consultants aims to provide consulting services by recruiting CU MBA graduate students with diverse skills and backgrounds. We believe that both the rigorous business training we are engaged in and our previous professional experience will be of value in building stronger and more successful business solutions.
Types of Projects
We are open to projects that require the advanced skill sets we have been developing as MBA students. Some examples include strategic planning, marketing, finance, business plan development, program evaluation, and business model implementation among others.
We believe that all Leeds students have the qualifications and skills needed to consult with local companies. It’s simply a matter of finding the right project. These projects not only get Leeds MBA’s real-world experience in their area of interest, it also helps build their resumes and expand their networks.
How it Works
Our leadership will assemble a team of 2-4 MBA students with a breadth of experience in all aspects of business to match the needs of each project. Teams will be based on expertise and interest. We start in September and will end in November prior to Thanksgiving break. There is no fee, but a suggested donation that goes towards student programming and educational activities. Students are not paid for their services.
We expect that each student will put in around 8 hours per month on the project, including monthly check-in meetings with the project contact person.
Applications for organizations are available online and are accepted on a rolling basis. All applications will be reviewed in early September and will be presented to students mid September. Students will begin work the week of September 28th.
