Who are we?

The POLIS Consultancy Group is an international, non-profit student consultancy that aims to develop enthusiastic and bright students into brilliant consultants during their bachelor and master programs.

Our goal is to create value both for our student consultants by offering a steep personal and professional learning curve, and for our clients by providing high quality advice where it creates the highest value. The POLIS Consultancy Group is partnering with SeederDeBoer to develop the student consultants during the 10 to 12 week project and we are also creating a coach network, filled with senior consultants with the goal of developing the student consultants on a personal level as well.

Why do we do this?

The idea for the POLIS Consultancy Group (PCG) comes from the fact that there is a lack of practical skill development during the Bachelor and Master of Organization Studies (OS) and Global Management of Social Issues (GMSI). The PCG will be a group next to the Study Association where students can develop themselves practically in the field of OS and GMSI, specifically related to the field of consultancy.

PCG will offer consultancy services to organizations who are looking for advice on a number of categories OS and GMSI students are specialized in. These students are trained, selected and guided in partnership with Tilburg University and external partners.
