The USB Consulting Club currently has 117 members that are either students or alumni of the USB scattered across South Africa and beyond – to Namibia, Swaziland, Tanzania, Zimbabwe and Zambia. The Club seeks to partner with key consulting experts to ensure that we produce the best consultants across Africa. These partnerships allow members to network with consultancies and, in addition, provide our members with key skills to apply during case studies and during the interviews process at consulting firms. For example, our Cape Town branch recently hosted a superb “crack-the-case” event with Accenture which focussed on applying ‘design thinking’ methodology.

The Club sees itself expanding into Johannesburg this year and will host at least one networking event and one “crack the case” event before 2019. We look forward to building partnerships and leveraging with consultancies in Johannesburg.

As they say – Change is a Constant! The Club is currently looking to extend the footprint into Namibia. This is an exciting chapter and I believe a way to bridge Club members to consulting firms could be through the alumni network.

I am extending an invitation to any students or alumni who are connected with any interested management consultancies in Namibia to contact the club as soon as possible via the Club’s email (usbconsultingclub@usb.ac.za or on twitter (@USBConsulting).

We are excited to be hosting another “crack-the-case” event in August. Our final event for this year will be our AGM – our flagship event where we will host an exciting panel discussion. The Consulting Club falls under USB’s Careers Services Office. With oversight provided by an Advisory Board, the Club is run by eight executive members, namely:
