THE INITIATIVE

The goal of our initiative is to offer high-quality pro-bono consulting advice to organizations in the nearby Central New Jersey Area on specific issues or problems that they need to address so as to move closer to their goals.

We harness a group of talented Princeton students who are eager to apply the rigorous analytical skills learned in academia to solve business problems.  Teams that work on consulting project will be comprised of a Project team Leader, which will guide the students throughout the duration of the project, and 3-4 graduate students. Each team will also be receiving considerable advice from the leadership board of the PUGCC to ensure that the services provided to the organization are of the highest grade. These students will come from a wide-range of Graduate Departments within Princeton University, and will bring a unique perspective to the organizations projects. Students will have the opportunity to work in a fast-paced and rewarding environment similar to a management consulting role.
