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.
Abdoulaye Deme tells us about his unique learning experience working with the Real Talk Conference, as Assistant Director of Corporate Affairs with SSCG.
“Being a part of the Sprott Student Consulting Group has been an incomparable experience. I feel very grateful for this program as I’ve been able to improve my skill set and expand my network, all while giving back to my community. The SSCG has better prepared me for the workforce and I truly believe that I’m a better leader because of it.”
– Kassandra Crawford, Sprott Student, SSCG Director of Engagement
“I started off as a project team member and subsequently rose to corporate roles. I have seen the organization evolve and consistently refine itself in all aspects. SSCG provided me the opportunity to engage with several Non-profits and start-ups in a professional context that allows for more effective relationship building than any formal networking session. Working with different clients to scope out projects on a variety of needs provided me an opportunity to gain knowledge beyond my field of work. Further, working with people from different backgrounds and experiences has been a great learning opportunity. I would say that experiential learning with SSCG is not for polishing resumes; rather, it is for people who seek new experiences and perspectives”
– Manu Ashok, Sprott Student, SSCG Director of Corporate Affairs

“We don’t really call it a course,” said Andrew Webb, Sprott professor and academic director of the initiative. “We try to make it as business like as possible.”
