The mission of the GW Undergraduate Consulting Group (GW UCG) is to provide distinguished undergraduates at The George Washington University with the tools necessary for entering and succeeding in the vast consulting industry. Through technical skill development workshops, pro-bono client service, strong alumni connections, and corporate partnerships - we strive to guide and develop the very best talent here in Washington, D.C. Our members are the given opportunity to learn about and work across the consulting spectrum, with exposure to federal and commercial sectors, to ensure critical knowledge of this incredible industry.
The UCG was formed in the Spring of 2014 when several students realized there was not a core resource for students interested in consulting. While there were a multitude of resources that GWU offered to students who would end up pursuing careers in consulting, students were mostly left to search for opportunities by themselves. Thus, we realized that GW needed an undergraduate student organization that educates students about consulting, provides skill development workshops, and consolidates the variety of consulting resources offered by GW itself or external firms. GW students would be more aware and prepared for existing job opportunities, as well as develop a stronger network of peers and alumni who are interested in this career path. In this respect, the Undergraduate Consulting Group was formed.
