180 Degrees Consulting

Our Mission

Our mission at the Rice University chapter of 180 Degrees Consulting is to help local Houston non-profits and NGOs solve their business challenges while offering Rice University undergraduates, graduate, and MBA students the opportunity to develop their consulting skills with real-world experience. We strive to improve the community and prepare Rice University students for a consulting career by gaining the skills they need to succeed outside the classroom.


What types of projects do we take?

Every semester our branch undertakes a diverse range of projects including areas of growth, marketing, business strategy, and finance.

Do I need to be a business student to apply?

No. Although some projects may require business knowledge, many aspects of a consulting project do not. We believes that a group of students from diverse backgrounds is essential for a functional and versatile consulting team. We encourage all interested students – regardless of background – to apply.

Should I still apply if I do not have consulting experience?

Yes. Although we do consider previous consulting experience an advantage, a significant proportion of our current team joined with no prior consulting background. We have a network of dedicated professors and professional mentors to improve all our members’ consulting abilities. What is more important to us is an inquisitive mind, hard work and a willingness to learn.

What training does 180 Degrees Consulting provide?

180DC as an organization provides a wealth of training materials standardized across all branches to make training simple and effective. Our partnerships with Rice professors and professional mentors also provides a valuable support network.
