To learn management and leadership through the practical application of research and theory to the benefit of our partner organizations.
We are dedicated and motivated undergraduate and MBA students who take on the roles of junior consultants who share a common goal of making a difference. Together, we work in interdisciplinary teams to apply our knowledge and skills in areas that accommodate our partner organization’s needs.
Working as consultants with real organizations, SSCG addresses business needs and opportunities such as market expansion, business planning, customer growth, and crisis management & recovery.
SSCG enables students to acquire practical experience, expand their professional networks, enhance their management and leadership skills, and obtain employability skills for their careers, while giving back to the community. SSCG members are ambitious, dedicated and internally motivated.
"As a member of the Sprott Student Consulting Group, I had the privilege of collaborating with business clients to address their unique challenges. My experience included undertaking corporate and project roles and then leading the organization as the Executive Director, which enabled me to forge connections both locally and globally. Under the mentorship of the Academic Director, I gained insights I wouldn’t have in a standard classroom. At its heart, SSCG is about serving the community while shaping the next generation of leaders. There’s no better opportunity for leadership and professional growth for students than SSCG."
– Angus Lau, Sprott Student, SSCG Executive Director
"As General Manager of the SSCG, the unwavering commitment of our team to consistently deliver high-quality solutions for each project not only continues to motivate me, but also significantly enhances my professional insights and overall experiences. This transformative journey has also contributed to my leadership and organizational proficiencies. Our exceptional student consultants ensure that our clients not only attain, but often surpass the anticipated outcomes, catalyzing substantial transformations within our collaborative partners."

"My experience as Director of Operations at SSCG allowed me to find practical solutions to obstacles, effectively handle expectations, and be prepared with contingency plans. By leading projects and teams, I gained a deeper understanding of professional interactions and business dynamics. I also learned that by setting clear objectives and performance measures, an organization can consistently achieve high-quality results, even when dealing with many diverse teams and projects."
