Welcome to the 180DC Turin Branch!
Who we are?
180 Degrees Consulting Turin was born in 2014 and since then it is a lot more than just a network of university students. We are a passionate and dedicated team of friends who work together to improve the community we live in, sharing goals, and build on each other’s ideas. All this in order to succeed together as a one-of-a-kind team of friends aiming to solve problems that matter.
Our branch invests in students and young people with innovative ideas, entrepreneurship, and cares to get involved. Through passionate training and effective mentorship provided by our team and our advisors working in the consulting industry, we improve always more our skills.
What our job is about?
At 180 Degrees Consulting Turin we collaborate closely with local NGOs and Non-Profits to improve their operations and help them increase their social impact and scale. We truly believe in them, supporting their missions and sharing their determination to shape a better community with equal opportunities for all individuals.
Our student association is organized like a real consultancy company, divided into internal functional areas (operations, finance, partnership, HR, marketing etc.); for more information about our consulting projects, at the bottom of this page, you can see some samples of projects completed.
Background and language requirements
It is mandatory to be signed up in a bachelor’s degree or master’s degree course under Polito or Unito. We accept student’s applications starting from the second year of the bachelor’s degree.
We are looking for students with a differentiated background, good entrepreneurship, and an attitude for team working. If you are not a student in economics, engineering, management, or finance it’s not an impediment; but it is an opportunity for us, as it is for you, to improve our capabilities and learn.
Good command of Italian and English is a must to be part of 180DC Turin. Additional language proficiency can be a plus.
Projects duration and workload
180DC projects take place usually from October to June and comprise two university semesters. Projects leave sufficient time for study day by day, especially during the exam period. Consultants work 2 to 4 hours per week on average, but the time can increase depending on your interest.
Volunteering and membership fee
Everybody is involved in 180 Degrees Consulting works pro bono (without a paycheck). Instead, you gain valuable consulting experience, increase your network with both exceptional students and interesting actors in the business, and not least you get to make an impact!
We require an annual fee of 25,00€ for every associate that must be conferred in October. This fee will be used for sustaining the projects, for the events and for the 180DC Turin branch needs.
