“The IMS Brogan summer consulting engagement (2015) is an excellent way to gain first-hand experience in Health Care Consulting. We had direct exposure to senior consulting staff and worked closely with members of a multi-functional team. Given the opportunity to work with a unique set of proprietary data, we investigated and answered pertinent questions in a hot area of health care today. This was a challenging and invaluable consulting experience that also led to two successful conference publications, and happily my current position as Consultant at IMS.”

University Consulting Group

The group aims to provide pro bono consulting to non-profit community organizations within the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). The program will run during the academic year (September-April) and will consist of two phases of projects. The number of projects will depend on the UCG’s capacity and the availability of clients. The consulting projects will be undertaken by teams of students from the University of Toronto. The students will be recruited by UCG to serve as volunteer consultants for the duration of the project. Advisers, who are working professionals with expertise in consulting and related industry, will train and guide the volunteer consultants during the project duration. The involvement of the advisers will also be pro bono and it’s seen as a form of volunteering. The entire program will be overseen and run by 3 Executive Directors, 2 of whom are the signing officers of the constitution.
