high-impact pro-bono consulting
We are a student-run organization at the University of Chicago. Each quarter, we pair student analysts with local nonprofits on pro-bono consulting engagements.
campusCATALYST analyst teams are composed of 5 undergraduate students who apply to work on 10-week consulting engagements with nonprofits. These students receive academic credit for their work and are supervised by a professor and MBA students from the Booth School of Business.
In a weekly seminar on nonprofit management, students learn about the nonprofit world from a professor and professional partners, utilizing case studies that reflect the issue area of the nonprofit in which they are consulting.
The MBA mentor facilitates a separate weekly meeting at which students are trained in basic consulting practices and develop weekly goals.
At the conclusion of the engagement, student teams present final recommendations to the nonprofit. campusCATALYST staff follows up with the nonprofit to assess its satisfaction with the student teams and the long-term results of the recommendations’ implementation.
