Tufts MAKE is a team-based design group that explores new ideas by making awesome things. Each week we learn about and practice each phase of the product design process by working on a variety of cool projects. Along the way we invite guests and visit local companies to understand how real-world professionals solve design problems. We then apply what we learn from those experts and each other to make whatever it is that we’re interested in making. Oh, and we have a ton of fun along the way.

The International Business Club (IBC) is one of the largest student organizations at The Fletcher School. Our popularity is a reflection of widespread student interest in global business issues and private sector career paths. As such, the club is dedicated to creating opportunities for members to engage with these issues and explore these careers. We do so by organizing site visits to companies in Boston, New York and Washington, DC; hosting business leaders from around the world to speak on campus; organizing workshops around key business skills; and supporting platforms, such as the Tufts $100k New Ventures Competition, for showcasing and discussing global business ideas outside the classroom.

The purpose of the Tufts Consulting Collective is to address the lack of consulting resources and preparation available for students interested in pursuing consulting as a career path. Our means of achieving this purpose are threefold: facilitate group workshops and activities, engage in consulting projects for local businesses, startups and non-profits, and to learn from consultants and industry experts. The combination of these three resources allows students to not only better their application when applying to consulting opportunities but also to better prepare for long-term careers in consulting. This organization gives students the ability to receive hands on learning with real projects while also being overseen by our Professional Advisor Board, made up of leaders in the different industries of consulting.
