The University of Stellenbosch Consulting Society (USCS) is a student-run organization aimed at creating a platform for young professionals from any discipline to gain deeper insight into the rapidly expanding industry of management consulting. Founded in 2016, the society was formed with the mission to equip students interested in pursuing a career within the consulting industry, with the necessary theoretical and practical skills needed to thrive within a fast-paced corporate environment. Additionally, we aim to provide students with opportunities to gain work experience at some of the leading management consulting firms.
Throughout the year our society hosts a variety of informative events centered around professional skills development including various case study skills workshops, interview preparation presentations as well as networking opportunities and discussions with industry leaders. Our goal is to be the public university feeder of choice for management consulting firms in South Africa and to promote student development in the field of management consulting by creating a pathway to bridge the gap between management consulting firms and students interested in the consulting industry.
