Uplifting Potential. Creating Success

The University of Pretoria Consulting Society (UPCS) is a young and ambitious society that is student driven. We as the UPCS strive to provide a platform where students can engage with top performing consulting firms in the industry. The purpose of the UPCS is to up-skill, equip and create a premium recruitment hot-spot for firms in the consulting industry. The vision for 2020 goes beyond just teaching learners about consulting, we aim to make a difference in the lives of our members. The UPCS aspires to create world changers and history makers one student at a time.

Together with the great collaborative efforts of our sponsors we want to create more engagement from our students with programmes in the society such as the Case Crack, Professional Development and the new UPCS Growth hub initiative. All members of our executive committee believe in this mission, and as such we will are determined to work tirelessly to see this vision come to life.

Our Vision

We want to create more than a society. We want to create a platform that members within the society can leverage well into the coming years to fully prepare them for the management consulting field. We want to be locally recognised as a university society that is indispensable to the preparation of students for the consulting field

Our Mission

To become the premier recruiting hotspot for consulting firms and become the most active and prestigious society at the University of Pretoria by offering extensive networking opportunities, active events with consulting firms, and skill-building activities.

4 years of excellence

Every year in consulting is like three years in the corporate world because you have multiple clients, multiple issues – you grow so much.

Breeding equipped consultants

We are focused on growing a membership base filled with students who are concerned about building a brighter future not only for themselves, but for the greater community as a whole, by constantly trying to improve themselves. We are looking for students with an appetite to learn new things and to be constantly challenged.

What will UPCS do for you?

Word Readiness

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

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!

Networking

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.
