UCL has been hailed as a “shining example” for supporting student entrepreneurs by the Guardian in an article about whether universities are doing enough to help students start new businesses.
Student Consultancy Projects
7 July 2014
As part of a team of volunteer UCL and LBS students, you’ll be paired with a business to deliver an exciting short-term consultancy project.
Selected from a diverse cross-section of academic backgrounds, your team of 4-6 students will deliver a project for one of London’s brightest SMEs over a period of 8-12 weeks, with the help of an expert advisor.
The Student Consultancy projects offer a real boost to your CV – past students have been offered jobs directly due to their participation in this scheme. You’ll also get priority places on consultancy career days throughout the year; receive a half-day’s training on how to form a high-performance team and deliver successful consultancy projects; and receive a certificate of participation on the project’s completion.
Your project will be also put forward for the Best Student Consultancy Project at UCL Enterprise’s high-profile annual Awards for Enterprise event in May 2014.
