CSE Consulting provides one-of-a-kind, award-winning help for your business.

Our students make actionable recommendations that are specific to your business and that are ready for you to put into action for growth that goes to a triple bottom line:

  • Profits

  • Planet

The team that consults with you is a group that is hand-picked from UNC Kenan-Flagler's most promising first-year MBA students. They must compete for the chance to be part of this program.

From 2005-2011, CSE managed the CSE Consulting program where MBA students worked on 30 deep dive sustainability consulting projects with businesses across industries and stages. 2011 was the final year for CSE Consulting but CSE continues to create sustainability consulting opportunities through the STAR program.
