The ANU branch of 180 Degrees Consulting has been operational for eight years with over 40 projects completed. Engaging between 25-40 students per academic semester, we have completed projects for numerous organisations including Mental Health Australia, OzHarvest, St Vincent de Paul, Parkinson’s ACT and the Royal Flying Doctor Service. Our project problems have included external marketing strategy, internal employee management, corporate strategy, financial planning and expansion.
Every academic semester, our student consultants devote time and skills to a project that a socially conscious organisation has submitted. Our purpose is to aide them to develop innovative, practical and sustainable solutions to the challenges these clients are facing.
The ANU Branch is fortunate to have numerous partners and sponsors in Nous Group, BCG, EY, and CA. They mentor and assist our student consultants (lead in teams) in relation to addressing the project issue and presenting solutions. As a result, our student consultants are granted the opportunity to increase their professional skills and exposure whilst assisting a community centred socially conscious organisation. Furthermore, our branch runs professional networking nights, training sessions, and project presentation evenings for our student consultants.
Through ANU 180DC, corporate firms gain exposure to high performing students from ANU whilst improving their professional outreach through mentoring, networking, or marketing. Socially conscious organisations are able to engage with low cost, accessible project consulting to fix internal issues and collaboratively improve student professional skills and engagement.
