BCIT Business Consulting Projects match a group of two or three students with local businesses to provide recommendations and solutions to a business problem or challenge. Most projects are completed between January and May of each year. Business Consulting Projects are available in marketing, human resources, business operations, information technology, and sustainable business.
Business Consulting Projects are different from traditional co-op and internship programs. Students are not assigned to actual positions, but rather fill a consulting role for your organization. A team of 2-3 students will spend countless hours dedicated to your project. Your organization will receive a comprehensive written report and an oral presentation outlining the student consulting team’s research and proposed recommendations.
Each project will have a BCIT faculty member that will serve as an advisor for the student consulting team. Exit surveys from participating companies show that the completed strategic business solutions have a value that far surpassed their expectations.
