180 Degrees Consulting – University of Sydney brings top university talent to the non-profit sector, transforming good organisations into great ones via our high-quality and uniquely affordable consulting services. We are dedicated to helping other non-profits and social enterprises to overcome challenges they’re facing and have the greatest possible social impact.
The University of Sydney is the largest 180 Degrees branch worldwide, driven by 70 innovative, passionate and socially-minded consultants. Here, we connect the untapped capabilities university students with the unmet needs of socially conscious organizations. Working in teams, our consultants spend the semester researching and preparing innovative, practical and sustainable, quality recommendations to help organisations achieve a greater social impact.
Importantly, the process is mutually beneficial. Non-profits, social enterprises, and socially minded businesses get custom solutions to problems they’re facing and university students get work experience, professional training, first-hand exposure to non-profits and social enterprises, real leadership development, and the opportunity to make a difference.
All of our consultants receive 10 hours of consultant training from our branch executive team and our primary sponsor, Nous Group, and 5 hours of direct advice and feedback on the project’s development from industry-leading consulting firms, including¸ The Boston Consulting Group and Infosys Portland.
We provide opportunities for our consultants to network and develop consulting skills with leading consulting firms at our regular industry-led events, such as our Networking nights and Case Competition. As a global organisation, we also offer the opportunity to connect and engage with other like-minded 180 Degrees consultants from across the Asia-Pacific region at our annual 180 Degrees Asia-Pacific Conference and 180 Degrees NSW consultant training events.
Our consultants represent over seven degrees and are selected for their academic excellence, extra-curricular involvement, leadership, teamwork skills and genuine passion for our work. We take applications during the first two weeks of semesters one and two, and strongly encourage students from all disciplines to apply.
