We want to help organisations realise their potential.

Why you should join as a consultant
The question is: Why shouldn’t you? We are a community of talented students that stretches across the globe. You will not only get the chance to develop your individual skills in our team with people who share the same values as you. You have the chance to continuously develop your professional abilities through various workshops, expert coaching and direct project experiences.
It is a dynamic atmosphere of growth and opportunity that we want you to be a part of.
What a semester with us looks like
Our consultancy projects last one semester. You can expect an exciting combination of team building, project development and the realisation of your sustainable impact. After a successful start and integration, you will either work as a consultant or as a customer success manager in our organisation. Be aware there is the possibility to grow. Become the next leader of the branch and to further develop our sustainable operations.
First step is the online application: submit your CV and fill out our application form. Please try to keep your answers short and simple – there is no need for an essay. As a second step, you will be invited to our recruiting days. We will introduce our organisation before you will participate in a group and an individual case. After we have assessed the performance and fit of all applicants, we will contact you about your acceptance in the third step.
Be prepared for the next hiring phase!
Do I need to be in a business faculty?
Our consultants have various academic backgrounds from different universities and we are convinced that this is not only highly beneficial for our clients but also for our student consultants and 180DC network. Although some projects may require business knowledge, many aspects of a consulting project do not. The 180DC Innsbruck 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.
Can I apply if I am an exchange student and only in Innsbruck for one semester?
After a successful application, will I need to complete a “Fellow-Phase”?
No! 180DC Innsbruck – in opposite to other student consultancies in Innsbruck – does not have a “Fellow-Phase”. Once you have convinced us at our recruiting days, you are part of a team that works together on a project with one of our clients.
Can I apply although I am still completing my bachelor’s?
Of course! 180DC is a network to provide you with experience and to grow your skills.
Can I apply without any 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. What is more important to us is an inquisitive mind, hard work and a willingness to learn.
How many hours will I have to invest in my 180DC project per week?
As a consultant 5-8 hours per week, as a team leader 8-10 hours. It is definitely manageable next to your studies.
How is COVID-19 affecting your operations?
Our assessment center will be held online in order to protect our board as well as all applicants. Throughout the semester, the situation will continuously be evaluated. The current plan would be to achieve a mix of in-person as well as online events. This also depends on the whereabouts of our consultants. If you are not in Innsbruck due to distance learning, this does not automatically disqualify you from applying. Simply let us know in your application!
