Nittany Lion Consulting Group (NLCG)

The Nittany Lion Consulting Group (NLCG) is an experiential learning program in the form of a student led, faculty supported consulting firm.  In NLCG, students earn academic credit as they collaborate with businesses to take on real-world business challenges. By combining these hands-on experiences with faculty mentoring and professional development sessions, students acquire knowledge and skills to empower and accelerate their future careers.

In addition to the curricular program, NLCG participants have a student club called the Penn State Consulting Organization which focuses on preparing its members for consulting related careers and the promotion of consulting as a career path to the broader Penn State community.  This promotion includes a 10-week open-enrollment Consulting Training Program which is offered by PSCO each semester.

NLCG seeks to provide Penn State students with superior professional experiences which will prepare them for careers in consulting and beyond. In doing so, the program leverages student effort and expertise to create real value and deliver innovative solutions for NLCG clients.

Sponsored by Smeal’s Management & Organization Department, NLCG is open to Penn State students from all majors at University Park.
