Clarkson Consulting Group

The Clarkson Consulting Group is a real-life, team-based consulting experience for Clarkson students. Each semester several projects are presented to the students by organizations facing challenges. These challenges may be domestic or international in nature, and may include study of new market opportunities, technical issues, business problems faced by large or small organizations or other business issues presented by the client.

Students work as actual consultants studying real and current issues for clients. Teams spend time exploring the particular consulting problem, but the focus of the course is on team-based problem solving. The consulting projects require critical thinking skills to solve unstructured novel problems.
