The 180 DC Student Branch at LSE was launched in 2014. Year on year, we have endeavoured to provide the best possible service to our clients, and as a result have built a high-standard portfolio of past projects. Through carefully selecting our consultants, we aim to make a significant positive impact in partnership with our socially-conscious clients. We are delighted to have the support of Syed Kamall (MEP). Syed is the leader of the European Conservatives and Reformists Group in the European Parliament and has worked with outstanding effort over his career to help small and medium sized charities.

Not-for-profit organisations and social enterprises are at the forefront of improving the quality of life for many of the world’s inhabitants. These organisations power development, fight against inequality and social injustice and ensure environmental sustainability. In many cases they are the sole providers of opportunities to people who would otherwise find themselves in a cycle of deprivation, which can in turn span generations. Given the importance of these organisations, the need to assist their operations by providing affordable and high quality consultancy expertise is great. It is essential that these organisations have the greatest possible impact and this forms the basis for our motivation to open 180 Degrees Consulting LSE Student’s Branch.

With the kind permission of our previous clients, we have presented below some examples of projects we have engaged in, and the subsequent client feedback. We look forward to updating you with our ongoing projects, should our clients wish to disclose.

Applications for our next recruiting cycle will open at the start of the 2018/19 academic year. Please refer to our Facebook page for ongoing updates on branch activity & events:
