AiB Consultants have a wide variety of professional experience and expertise. Their backgrounds allow them explore your needs as a business owner and develop a custom solution to help achieve your specific company goals.
Working With AiB
AiB is available to perform a variety of consulting activities on a fee-for-service basis. They work collaboratively with prospective clients to understand their goals and to develop a proposal that defines the scope of the project, specific deliverables, and an estimated timeline for completion. In addition, each proposal will define an estimated cost for the project, which is determined using a flat, per-hour fee and an estimate of the total number of hours required from consultants.
While there is a cost associated with hiring AiB, our rates are highly competitive with other external consulting organizations. AiB, however, provides a unique way for companies to tap into the top student talent on the Texas A&M campus and the benefit of having consultants that can access comprehensive industry databases and other resources available through Texas A&M.
