Student Consulting Teams

Olin’s Center for Experiential Learning (CEL) can help your organization solve business challenges by providing cost-effective management expertise. In the practicum, student teams tackle a problem that you define, guided by a faculty member who has expertise in the area of your project. The Taylor Community Consulting Program provides pro bono consulting for nonprofit organizations. Projects range from new product introductions and organizational change to financial analysis and operations re-engineering. Other experiential programs focus on international business and globalization, the management of nonprofit organizations and entrepreneurship.

These programs provide a great opportunity for you to assess our students' on-the-job business skills and leadership potential. In fact, many CEL clients have hired our graduates after working with them on projects. For more information, go to the CEL website or call 314-935-4512.
