Welcome to 180 Degrees Consulting Copenhagen!
Our diverse team of 9 board members represents 6 different countries, 8 study backgrounds and 3 universities in Copenhagen – But we have a lot in common too! That we wish to contribute to projects that matter, for example. That we aspire to put the skills we gain through study programs directly into practice. And that we enjoy working as a team to accomplish the best results possible. If you are interested in a fun, relevant and meaningful volunteer experience next to your studies, we welcome you to get involved with 180 Degrees Consulting in Copenhagen too!
We offer between 30 and 40 students, each semester, a chance to become student consultants, receive training from our partners (Next Step by Bindslev and Implement Consulting Group). The 30-40 student consultants will be divided into teams consisting of five, which will then help and work with a, for that semester, selected organisation. Each semester we find and contact new organisations who could both benefit from working with us and at the same time benefit our student consultants. Below you can find a list of previous organisations that we have worked with.
We’re able to offer very high-quality consulting services without the usual price tag because our consultants are carefully selected top university students with the right combination of expertise, creativity, and problem-solving ability. These consultants work on a volunteer basis because they believe in the work we’re doing. They believe that improving the effectiveness of organisations can make a massive and meaningful difference to the people those organisations serve.
As such, 180 Degrees connects the untapped capabilities of university students with the unmet needs of socially conscious organisations. The process is mutually beneficial. Non-profits, social enterprises, and socially minded businesses get custom solutions to the obstacles they’re facing while university students get work experience, professional training, and the opportunity to make a difference.
