Engagement timeline:

SCNO's engagements this year run from the mid-October 2019 until the middle of April 2020. Before each engagement, our consultants develop basic soft and hard skills through classroom training that prepare them to work with their clients. The education component consists of both internal case competitions and corporate-led workshops. 

 

Engagement scope:

We are open to any type of project, but focus on finding a mutual fit between organizations with needs that match our students' skills. As a business club, we generally favor engagements with a business-relevant scope. 

Previous clients include...

"So many of our agencies do not have the financial ability to hire development directors, marketing, or other business related staff. Having SCNO members develop systems that will maximize productivity or increase awareness of services is a valuable asset to our agencies."
