Berkeley's Brightest

BBS is comprised of consultants selected from among the top students at UC Berkeley through a rigorous recruitment process. Each consultant participates in regular training sessions led by Haas faculty, MBA students, and industry professionals to ensure that only the highest quality of work is delivered to our clients.

BBS consultants are adept at breaking down and critically analyzing the most challenging business problems. They are committed to driving positive change and are always eager to take on new challenges. As a result, BBS alumni have consistently gone on to work at top-tier firms such as McKinsey & Company, Bain & Company, Goldman Sachs, and Apple.

BBS offers consulting services to clients across a spectrum of industries, including global corporations, nonprofits, startups, government agencies, and more. Each project has a uniquely tailored scope and timeline in order to maximize value for both clients and consultants.

BBS strives to deliver professional, high-quality results on par with professional consulting firms. Through access to vast pools of databases, industry-specific knowledge, and a tailored group of professional and motivated students, BBS has the ability to engage with any organization's toughest problems.

Project Structure

Projects timelines typically span 12 to 14 weeks, with each consultant committing around 10-14 project-dedicated hours per week. We usually work in week-long cycles, engaging with our client on a regular basis to ensure that our work is as customized and relevant as possible.

On top of ongoing involvement with our research and findings, we will present at least one formal deliverable to discuss our solutions to a greater depth, with additional midpoint deliverables available at our client's request. All deliverables typically come with a research report and mockups to aid project clarity.
