Grow your business with senior student consultants from the University of Guelph.

We work with you to develop a project plan. Then, you are matched with a student team who deliver a comprehensive report detailing the project's objectives, findings, and suggested courses of action.

  • Our experience with CBaSE was nothing short of exceptional. The students went above and beyond on the project and the team at CBaSE was fantastic to work with as well. Our goal for the four months was to research a potential industry that we had yet to penetrate. The team at CBaSE led this project and delivered great results. We are planning to do more projects with CBaSE in the coming semesters and would recommend them to any business.

  • Working in a team to solve real issues for two separate clients has been as rewarding as it has been challenging. Being able to take ownership of both a problem, and for developing a realistic solution is an experience that I’ve found to be unique to this course and I’m thankful to have had it in both fall and winter semesters of 2014-2015. CBaSE has validated my education, my knowledge and my abilities in a way that no traditional ‘in the classroom’ course could.

  • The CBaSE student's final report offered valuable, current perspectives which were thoroughly researched. Their suggestions were conscious as to who our target customer is, what our suppliers do and focused on our uniqueness in bringing this together within the e-commerce market. Their insights and ideas have greatly assisted in the strategic planning process used to grow our reach.

  • I had the privilege of working with my CBaSE team over the past semester. The team was dedicated, professional, and the passion with which they undertook my project was infectious. The meticulousness of their efforts was clearly evident in the concise and polished report I was handed at the end. Most importantly my team provided sound strategies for future marketing success.
