Class of 2022
Joining 180DC has been one of the best decisions I ever made in college. This organization enabled me to combine my interests in business and social impact, experience so much personal and professional development, and meet lifelong friends.
Class of 2023
180DC has given me the opportunity to team up with some of the brightest consulting minds on campus to help clients make a difference in our local, national, and global communities. Project managing for 180DC developed my leadership and analytical skills in a fun team environment.
Class of 2021
Joining 180DC was a great decision that has allowed me to step outside of my comfort zone in terms of industry and culture. I have also gained a lot of knowledge and have had access to many resources which I am eager to share with my community to increase the representation of BIPOC students in the business world.
How is 180DC different from other consulting groups?Our clients are nonprofits and social enterprises. We are a small, tight-knit group of mission-driven individuals—by working closely with some of the most influential socially-oriented organizations in Los Angeles and beyond, we strengthen their ability to achieve high-impact outcomes. Consultant training is facilitated through our quarter-long new member training program, hands-on client work, workshops, events, case competitions, and other forms of professional development. We also take on projects with clients from every part of the world, since we have over 150 branches in 33 countries across the globe.
Do I need consulting experience?No prior consulting experience is required. We seek hardworking individuals who demonstrate a balance of qualitative and quantitative skills. Those who are passionate about social impact and ready to dedicate time to projects are a perfect fit for 180DC, even if they are not sure about consulting yet.
What majors do you accept?We are open to all majors, not just traditionally business majors. A great aspect of 180DC is our ability to help you explore opportunities beyond a consulting career. If you are interested in product management, data science, investment banking, venture capital, law, nonprofit work, start-ups, and more, 180DC is a great environment for developing hard and soft skills applicable to a wide variety of fields.
What class levels do you accept?We accept applicants we feel will contribute greatly to our organization from any undergraduate class level.
When is your next recruitment cycle?We recruit every Fall and Winter Quarter during Weeks 1-2. Please follow our website and Instagram page (@ucla180dc) for updates on events and deadlines.
