Student consulting clubs

July 21, 2023

How do you become a consultant? One of the most surprising answers, at least for Americans, is that you can learn the basics by joining a student consulting club.

“Over the past decade or so, undergraduate ’consulting clubs’ have proliferated. The idea is to band together and offer to do work for firms for a fraction of the cost of hiring regular consultants, and in the process learn a lot about business,” writes The Economist in a recent article on What the rise of student consulting clubs means.

Since consulting jobs, in both freelancing and employment, can be very lucrative, this is a great way to explore their caveats and possibilities. The student consultants may be paid next to nothing, but they could just as easily make a fortune in the future.
