Our Consulting Teams
SENSA Consulting is Stanford’s premier student-run social impact consulting group, providing solutions for social enterprises in areas such as marketing, pricing, product development, and more.
Since the founding of our consulting branch, we have worked with a number of high impact social enterprises including The Malala Fund, Rhymes with Reason, TeachAids, and AbleThrive. Our past work has included product development, impact evaluation, growth strategy, and consumer relationship management. Our teams are skilled in utilizing their technical abilities, design-based thinking, and commitment to social change to create impact and solve problems.
Following a fall quarter training period, the group works on 4 cases per quarter. Led by a project manager, teams of 5 work to create innovative and sustainable solutions to problems our clients face in the social sector, whether that be in investment analysis, market research, product development, or marketing strategy. Past verticals have included Education Technology, Women’s support, Healthcare, and Disability accommodation.
Ultimately, we strive to provide incredible talent and value to our partner organizations and create an environment that allows the next generation of college students to create social impact.
