The Eller Business Consulting Program provides a unique opportunity for student teams to work directly with companies to create high-impact, implementable business solutions.

Each consulting project is specifically tailored to a real-world business challenge in a local, regional, or global company. Projects are selected based on the applicable skills required and the industry interest of our students.

The Eller student consulting teams are made up of four to six graduate students. Teams are supported by Eller College of Management faculty, who provide subject matter expertise. The Executive Director and Assistant Director of Business Consulting provide the students with project management support.
