Capilano University is committed first and foremost to
student success. We believe that dynamic partnerships in community, industry
and education are key to helping our students achieve their educational, life
and career goals.
The Capilano School of Business Consulting Program
(CSBCP) kicks off a new experiential learning opportunity for students and
facilitates important relationships with the North Shore business community.
The CSBCP gives students a unique opportunity to interact with a business in
the community and deliver a consulting project. Students apply their knowledge
from the classroom and develop practical business skills in communication,
critical, thinking, analysis, and problem solving. The business is a partner in
the project and acquires a resource to meet their needs and improve their
business activities. Partner businesses (the clients) are offered one of the
following for their business needs: a strategic plan, marketing plan, financial
analysis, HR plan, and business plan or business case. Supervised by Capilano
School of Business Faculty, students learn and practice consulting skills to
diagnose and validate the client’s request. Through research, analysis, and the
use of professional level templates, students develop one of the abovementioned
plans in constant interaction with the client to achieve a usable deliverable.

The CSBCP provides a unique and solid experiential
learning opportunity to students, an exciting journey for faculty members and a
usable deliverable to our business community. This program acts as a
win-win-win collaborative educational effort that supports our commitment to a
student focused learning environment.
