What does a Program Consultant do?

Program consultants provide guidance and support in the planning, creation, and administration of programs or initiatives in their particular area of business expertise. These consultants work in a wide range of industries including healthcare, technology, energy, and finance. They guide strategic planning and assist with outlining long-term objectives and action plans. They design, organize, and implement systems and tools to automate routine tasks and make processes more accurate and consistent. They often collaborate with a cross-functional group of internal stakeholders, along with external vendors and possibly clients.

Program consultants typically have at least a bachelor’s degree in their particular field, although an advanced degree such as an MBA is an asset. They must have excellent project management capabilities and good communication skills. Proficiency with project management programs is helpful.
