In the beginning of Colorado State University’s 2009 spring semester, RAS & Associates introduced a new initiative to the CSU College of Business. In the first phase of the initiative, RAS developed and taught ‘Consulting 101’, a robust course highlighting all aspects of the consulting industry. The second phase consisted of a student-run consulting project with a local aerospace and defense firm as the chosen client, which was kicked off and managed by RAS. The culmination of the project consisted of a networking event where students presented their case study results to top executives in the Denver area. This ground-breaking initiative provided students deep knowledge about the consulting industry and exposure to real-world business issues. RAS & Associates looks forward to teaming up with other local universities and companies in the future to introduce this initiative to many more students.
