Consulting Communication

BCOM 314 Consulting Track

Students develop resume building experiences and professional communication skills valued in the work place through live consulting projects. The consulting track of BCOM 314 provides Eller undergraduate students with a challenging and dynamic classroom experience.  Through consulting projects, students work with local businesses and non-profit organizations to solve business challenges and implement effective strategies on real-world projects. The business communications programs offer two consulting tracks, Honors Consulting and College Social Responsibility (CSR) Consulting. Through consulting projects, Eller students contribute to making a positive impact on the Southern Arizona Community while building their professional expertise.

Over 1,500 Eller undergraduate students have participated in the consulting track. Since the inception of the BCOM 314 consulting track in Spring 2011, Eller undergraduate students have collectively provided over 20,000 hours of support to over 50 distinct client organizations.

Students in the consulting track work in teams on a joint project with a cross-curricular approach in their Business Communications, Marketing, and Management courses to assist local organizations in implementing successful business practices.

BCOM 314 consulting projects bring together Eller students and Southern Arizona organizations to make a measurable impact in our community.

Eller Students Learn
As students work with organizations in the community, they benefit from the chance to apply their knowledge and skills in consulting, business-related research, client management, presentation, and professional writing. Eller students also benefit from the opportunity to network with Tucson’s business professionals.

Tucson Organizations Benefit
As businesses and non-profits partner with Eller through CSR Projects, they benefit from Eller’s expertise as well as our students’ enthusiasm and professionalism. Most importantly, organizations come away with smart, implementable business solutions.

Our Community Improves
The success of the consulting projects is not only measured in business improvements or student learning, but community impact as well. Every project that students complete for local organizations contributes to the betterment of our community. Positive community impact is at the center of all our projects.
