Uplifting Potential. Creating Success
The UP Consulting Society is a student-run organisation aiming to bridge the gap between students and the consulting world, in order to ease the transition from university to a successful consulting career. The UP Consulting Society aims to be the premier recruiting hotspot for consulting firms and become the most active and prestigious society at the University of Pretoria through offering extensive networking opportunities, active events with consulting firms, and skill-building activities.
The UPCS is one of the most active societies on campus with a strong value proposition for members, and many opportunities for students to get involved with their university and career plans beyond academia. Our strong ties with top firms in industry, multiple events, skills development, interview training schemes and yearly competitions makes us one of the most exciting and sought after societies on campus, boasting a 400+ membership base.

One engagement at a time
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.
