Frequently Asked Questions:
What types of projects do we take?
Every semester our branch undertakes a diverse range of projects including areas of marketing, business strategy and finance.
Do I need to be in the business faculty to apply?
Definitely not. Although some projects may require business knowledge, many aspects of a consulting project do not. 180DC HKU Team believes that a group of students from diverse backgrounds is essential for a functional and versatile consulting team. We, therefore, encourage students from all faculties to apply.
Should I still apply if I do not have consulting experience?
Yes. Although we do consider previous consulting experience an advantage, a significant proportion of our current team joined with no prior consulting background. We have a network of dedicated University teachers and professional mentors to improve all our member’s consulting abilities. What is more important to us is an inquisitive mind, hard work and a willingness to learn.
What training does 180 Degrees Consulting provide?
180DC as an organization provides a wealth of training materials standardized across all branches to make training simple and effective. Our partnerships with University professors and professional mentors also provides a valuable support network.
