"During the last 2 years 180 Degrees Consulting has been a catalyst in my student life in 3 main ways. Firstly, thanks to roles as consulting director and president, I improved both my hard skills and soft skills while creating social impact. Secondly, I got to meet like-minded students, some of which have become my closest friends. And thirdly, it proved to be a gateway to my first job at Kearney."
"180 Degrees Consulting to me were my first steps into the world of consultancy. To test the waters and see whether I could one day become a consultant, and enjoy it too. Two years later, I landed my first strategic management consultancy job. The people I’ve met along the way, both 180DC members and partners, made the journey unforgettable. I will always be truly grateful for my 180DC family."
"When 180DC branch was established some year ago, I had no doubts in joining the organisation. This primarily because of its strong focus on the creation of social impact and its eagerness to provide students a large number of learning opportunities. In the end, 180DC Leuven enabled me to develop on both a professional and personal level, gave me the chance to make friends for life and helped me in receiving my first job offers."
"I loved the open-minded and social team I worked with, both the project team and the entire 180DC team. Solving real-life cases while having social impact gave me fulfilment and made me feel helpful. The workshops and the personal feedback sessions of the consulting companies offer good support and are definitely a plus of 180DC."
