“By giving me practice working on management consulting projects directly with clients locally and nationally, YUCG was invaluable in helping me prepare for interviews in many different strategic and financial roles.”- Chris, Class of 2020.
As a member of the Yale Undergraduate Consulting Group, students can hone their critical thinking skills and perform consulting services in the areas and industries they most care about. We offer our members the opportunity to work as analysts and project managers on projects ranging from small community initiatives to global non-profit organizations, and from uprising startups to international corporations. The YUCG experience will facilitate students to become leaders and innovators within the consulting industry and beyond.
We provide a training program for new members on presentation skills, Microsoft Excel, and basic financial modeling, aiming to establish a concrete foundation for their future development. YUCG also holds workshops for resume and cover letter writing, and case interview preparation. Development is a story, and because of that, we visit consulting firms such as Bain, and invite guest speakers to hold panels, including industry professionals and former YUCG members/
The life of a consultant, just like a student and just as any professional, does not solely revolve around their area of work. The Yale Undergraduate Consulting Group is also an enjoyable experience outside of work. It is a closely-knit group of students who enjoy weekly dinners and regular meetings along with regular mixers with other pre-professional groups on campus. When time on campus becomes a regular, club-wide bonding events unfold like an escape room or laser tag match. Of course, the culmination of our project work over a semester is a formal event, a truly enjoyable night to reward us for our hard work. This organization is the embodiment of its members, and each one can make it their own.
