Net Impact Consulting Challenge (NICC)

SICC is a three-month pro bono consulting engagement that matches groups of Anderson students with socially driven organizations in the Los Angeles area to solve real business problems. Throughout the program, students have opportunities to gain real-life consulting experience in the impact space while earning course credits.
