The 2015 Student Consultancy Program work with a new cohort of sophomore and junior students to develop their critical thinking, problem solving, and communication skills.
In 2015, we will work in teams to solve a business issue. The students' final presentation will be to community leaders, peers and families. All donors are welcome to join the presentations and reception.
We are so grateful for the support and generosity of friends, donors and colleagues for helping us raise funds to make the Student Consultancy Program possible.
