Student Impact: Be the change - the student consultancy of a different kind

Student Impact is a student-led consultancy for sustainable business at the University of St. Gallen. We pursue the goal of achieving social and ecological impact and making sustainability integral to the economy. 

Management Consulting is our means of success by bringing together motivated students to advise mission-driven organizations that seek to create social and ecological value on business-related mandates. Since our formation in 2012 over 100 start-ups, SMEs, NGOs and corporates have already been supported through creative ideas arising from the innovative spirit and intrinsic motivation of our members and based on the solid theoretical foundation provided by the University of St. Gallen.  

Furthermore, we believe in a world where responsible leaders reach their full potential to implement disruptive ideas and maximize their positive impact. Which is why the professional and personal development of our close to 50 active members, who are full-time students working up to 40% on a voluntary basis, presents the yardstick for everything we do at Student Impact. 

Top 3 learnings:

  1. With a helping hand and some words of encouragement, everybody can become an agent of change. 
  2. Bring together a bunch of motivated, driven minds and transformative things are bound to happen. 
  3. Assuming responsibility is best done in community.
