What will UPCS do for you?
One of the biggest complaint laid by management and top level executives in management consulting is work readiness. Most students are not adequately equipped to conduct themselves well in the workplace. We have experts who are going to tell you all of the need-to-know.
Problem solving; one could really say is fundamentally the essence of consulting. Management consultants solve problems. Without this particular skillset, there's not much value you add to a consulting firm. We help you develop that!
Through the numerous events we host for our members with the aim of connecting them with industry giants and fellow students sharing the same interests, networking will become second nature if you are active in this society.
