YUCG was founded in 2010 by a group of student consultants with experience working at companies such as McKinsey & Co., Google, and Blackstone. Since then, YUCG has recruited passionate students from Yale College to produce high quality consulting work for our clients. Our students have worked on projects for a variety of clients, from media start-ups to large multi-national businesses. Our alumni go on to achieve in every corner of the business world, and we believe that excellent consulting begins at the undergraduate level.
