YUCG was founded in 2010 by a cohort of passionate Yale undergraduates with experience at McKinsey & Co., Google, and Blackstone. Since then, YUCG has grown to 6 project teams and over 60 members. We have completed projects for a diverse client base, from international non-profits, and civic institutions, to multinational Fortune 500 companies such as Google, Delta, Uber, Linkedln, Pfizer, and more.
We pride ourselves on bringing together some of the brightest, most motivated, and driven students at Yale to solve high-impact business challenges. Every semester, YUCG works with clients on 4-5 different projects with varying scopes for 10-12 weeks. Projects are led by a project manager and executive director alongside a team of 4 to 5 dedicated analysts.
Outside of project work, YUCG is a closely-knit group bonded by shared personal and professional pursuits.
New and old members connect over weekend retreats, trips to New York City, end-of-semester formals, as well as regular social events such as weekly team dinners, study sessions, kickbacks, and more.
Aside from simply working together, our members grow alongside each other. Hailing from different countries from Japan to Côte d'Ivoire and varied academic backgrounds including but not limited to Economics, Computer Science, Statistics & Data Science, Film, and Chemical Engineering, members share a passion for their work and the friendships that are formed.
YUCG members build on the skills and experience they have gained to join top companies and industries across all industries after graduation. Check out some of the firms where you can currently find proud YUCG alumni.
