For Students

OBR-Consulting encourages highly skilled students and academics from all backgrounds to apply for OBR-Consulting projects. The OBR-Consulting Programme provides a unique opportunity for outstanding students from all backgrounds to gain experience in business consulting, acquire insight into bio-business and build a strong network with other high caliber peers and industry professionals, while contributing to industry by solving real-life business problems.


Each team consists of 4-5 members, including a Team Leader. The role of the Team Leader is to co-ordinate team meetings and report to the Project Manager to ensure the project is on track and final deadlines are met. Team Leaders may progress to Project Managers based on previous project performance.

Time commitment

OBR-Consulting projects are part-time commitments, designed to be completed in parallel to full-time academic commitments. Project teams usually meet during evenings and weekends in a manner suitable for full-time students. While it is understood that all student members have academic commitments, as OBR-Consultants, participants have made a formal business commitment to clients by accepting projects and are expected to complete projects in a professional manner in order to receive their Consulting Achievement Certificates.
