On Saturday, November 11, 2017, the GW Undergraduate Consulting Group (UCG) launched the Inaugural Fall Case Competition, where 15 teams of 3-4 students competed against one another intensely. The competition consisted of two knock-out rounds, judged by senior consultants from IBM, KPMG, and Deloitte.
GW UCG is an undergraduate student organization, affiliate with the GW School of Business of The George Washington University, striving to prepare aspiring consultants. The student organization provides GW students a consolidated place to learn about consulting, develop the skills necessary to excel in the consulting industry, and gain access to hiring opportunities in all areas of consulting.
All participants put valuable efforts and enthusiasm into their presentations, which made this first-time ever competition a success. After a full day of competition, Won Seok Han, a GWSB undergraduate senior and a program coordinator at the Korean Management Institue (KMI), won the first place with Hyunjung Kim, Jae Hun Jung, and Vaibhav Jain.
Special thanks to GW UCG and The George Washington University – School of Business for organizing the event. Additionally, a huge thank you to the judges from Deloitte, IBM, and KPMG, who spent a full day on Saturday, judging cases and providing the participants with highly useful feedback.
