Past Students' Comments

David Gouws

"QBC is a fantastic opportunity for undergraduate students to gain insight into solving real-world business problems. By engaging with clients, leveraging program resources and collaborating with teammates, students quickly learn how to tackle ambiguity and frame solutions effectively. Under the leadership of Prof Mignault, QBC provides a semester of ownership and growth, and should be seriously considered by anyone looking to become a more effective consultant, marketer or business problem-solver."

"With Queen’s Business Consulting, I had an incredible opportunity to really think. To think deeply, critically, and with greater freedom than most traditional learning environments. The autonomy of Queen’s Business Consulting allowed me to challenge my intellectual curiosity, and assume roles within our project that I once believed were outside my capabilities. The connections I developed with my colleagues, with our client, and with the Kingston community continue to stay with me long beyond Queen’s. Definitely a highlight."

"I joined QBC as a Consultant in the Fall 2018 semester. My team and I worked with a local, newly founded not-for-profit seeking to open a healthcare facility in Kingston. We were tasked with creating a 5-year business plan, financial plan, and feasibility assessment and presentation materials. Throughout these 12 weeks, I quickly learned how to communicate with clients and my peers, develop key recommendations and ultimately, how to apply what I was learning in the classroom to a legitimate problem. Queen’s Business Consulting is a unique, and perhaps the only opportunity on campus for students to truly develop these “soft skills” and deliver tangible and meaningful results in a real-world setting. As a Manager for QBC 2018-2019, I recognize the wide variety of projects and clients that we work with every day. From market-research to feasibility assessments, to core business plans or operational plans, we truly do it all."

"QBC provided me with a unique opportunity to apply my in-class learnings to real-world problems and make a tangible impact on the Kingston community. Being able to work with some of the brightest students from Commerce, Engineering, Arts or Computer Programming opened my eyes to diverse perspectives and fostered a cross-collaboration mentality I use in my professional career today. If anyone has an opportunity to take this course, I would highly encourage them to do so as QBC was one of the most challenging, yet rewarding experiences during my time at Queen’s — Don’t miss this experience."

"QBC was an amazing way to differentiate my skillset in the commerce program. The opportunity to work on a real business problem outside the classroom and make a real impact on a client was extremely valuable, challenging and rewarding. I would highly recommend the program to anyone interested in consulting."

"Queen’s Business Consulting is a fantastic real-world opportunity for upper year Commerce students. It allowed me the opportunity to apply what I learned in the classroom in helping a local business overcome a variety of different obstacles and challenges. From client-relations to conflict management, QBC sets you up with skills and experiences that will assist you in whichever field you choose following your time at Queen’s. Not to mention, you’ll get the chance to work alongside and form worthwhile connections with your clients, managers and fellow students. I highly recommend getting involved with QBC."
