Nittany Lion Consulting Group (NLCG)

Nittany Lion Consulting Group (NLCG) is a new organization that was created in place of Nittany Consulting Group, Students Consulting for Nonprofit Organizations and the Management 496 course. NLCG combines the best of the three organizations to create a unified and more robust consulting organization with the goal of making Penn State a leading location in the Mid-Atlantic for undergraduate consulting-related education. With support from the Smeal College of Business, NLCG is a student led, faculty supported consulting organization. Our organization seeks to provide Penn State students with superior professional experiences which effectively prepares them for careers in consulting and beyond, and leverages our diverse ranges of expertise to provide innovative solutions to the business issues our clients face.


The Penn State Consulting Organization (PSCO) is a student organization led by NLCG members and is open for students of all majors and all levels of experience to join. In PSCO, students get to learn the fundamentals of consulting and broaden their horizons through weekly lessons, networking events as well as case competitions. For prospective NLCG members, PSCO is the pathway to membership for our group, which offers further professional development through experiential learning and exclusive events that broadens students’ horizon.
