Who are we?

180 Degrees Consulting Leuven started its first operational year in September of 2019, finally bringing the most established student consultancy worldwide to the largest university in Belgium. During the past three years, the consultancy teams at 180DC Leuven successfully completed more than 25 projects for social enterprises. We can attribute these successes to the extensive professional and personal development opportunities, through training from top-tier consulting companies, which our consultants leverage to reach their full potential.

Jari Ingang

Business Analyst at Kearney

During the last 2 years 180 Degrees Consulting has been a catalyst in my student life in 3 main ways. Firstly, thanks to roles as consulting director and president, I improved both my hard skills and soft skills while creating social impact. Secondly, I got to meet like-minded students, some of which have become my closest friends. And thirdly, it proved to be a gateway to my first job at Kearney.

Lise Ceulemans

Associate Consultant

180 Degrees Consulting to me were my first steps into the world of consultancy. To test the waters and see whether I could one day become a consultant, and enjoy it too. Two years later, I landed my first strategic management consultancy job. The people I’ve met along the way, both 180DC members and partners, made the journey unforgettable. I will always be truly grateful for my 180DC family.

Annelore Louis

Business Analyst at BrightWolves

Two years ago, when to 180DC branch was established, I had no doubts in joining the organisation. This primarily because of its strong focus on the creation of social impact and its eagerness to provide students a large number of learning opportunities. In the end, 180DC Leuven enabled me to develop on both a professional and personal level, gave me the chance to make friends for life and helped me in receiving my first job offers.
