S3 2021 Client Project List

Why This Works

Our amazing talented and dedicated students work in teams that commit 900 hours to the client and the project. Students are MBAs and students from public health, public policy, social welfare, development practice, education, urban planning and beyond. Each team is composed of a diverse group formed to answer the client question.

A tried and true approach which we follow rigorously based on best professional management consulting practices from top consulting firm McKinsey & Company. The teams are co-taught by Paul Jansen, Director Emeritus, McKinsey and Adjunct Professor; Nora Silver, Founder and Faculty Director, Haas’ Center for Social Sector Leadership and Adjunct Professor; and Joe Dougherty, Partner, Dalberg Advisors and Lecturer. Instructors meet and work with teams each week and help teams follow the process we know produces top results.

The partnership with world-class consulting firm, McKinsey & Company, which brings its expertise and its skilled McKinsey consultants to coach every S3 team.
