I really enjoyed getting to work with a real client who was making a positive impact on the world. By understanding their needs and having important discussions within our team, we were able to build them a quantitative and qualitative model that will help them think about their expansion in the future. The guidance provided by Nora [Faculty Director] as well as the structure of the class helped our team successfully grow our skills and deliver something truly valuable to our client. S3 was more like a job than a class, it was a lot of work, but it was work that was rewarding!

Prior to joining S3, I had no experience with consulting and truly did not know how to approach a large-scale problem without any formal training or expertise. Framing the problem and conducting interviews and research were skills that I honed over the course of the semester working with the S3 professors and my team. […] Beyond the skills to succeed, the Haas Center for Social Sector Leadership (CSSL) also provided me with the financial means to live out a life long dream of mine, a National Parks road trip across America! Over the course of a month my partner and I road-tripped from Berkeley to Boston visiting 57 NPS sites along the way.
