Stern Consulting Corps

In the business world, consultants help analyze and solve organizations’ most challenging problems. Consultants tackle these challenges by applying a structured approach to their analyses; this in turn allows for successful problem-solving across industries. Through the Stern Consulting Corps (SCC), students learn these skills in a hands-on, for-credit course with blue chip brands as the projects partners.

In SCC, teams of MBA students create lasting, business-driven impact with our partners by crafting actionable business plans and targeting opportunities for growth. This is done through the SCC’s partnership with a large and diverse group of for- and non-profit organizations in New York City, the center of the modern business world.

SCC students learn how to solve these complex business problems under the advisement of NYU Stern faculty, while simultaneously testing their skills in real-world settings.
