HCCG recruits Harvard’s most capable and dedicated students by selecting fewer than 10% of applicants. This talent, combined with regular training from industry professionals, underpins the impeccable standards of our work. Our members build on their skills and experience to join top employers.
Our group provides the absolute best talent at extremely competitive fees. Each team commits over 400 hours to a case, allowing us to complete significant projects and produce sophisticated and impactful results. Clients report tangible results; one client reported a 40% year-over-year increase in top line revenue.
HCCG tailors each case to best match client’s goals and continually adapts as ideas develop and opportunities change. Through working flexibly from the ground up instead of relying on generic, canned frameworks, we foster innovative thinking and deliver actionable solutions that fit our clients' strategies.
Our group offers unmatched access to Harvard’s students, alumni, faculty, and research. Our position at the center of these resources produces insights that cannot be found elsewhere. Past cases have used focus groups, alumni interviews, research databases, and faculty at HBS to create unique value.
The Harvard College Consulting Group uses an adaptable and customizable team structure and a mix of backgrounds and skills to deliver results. By combining several students with different skills, experiences, and academic backgrounds, HCCG case teams tackle each question from many perspectives. Each team is led by a Case Team Leader, who oversees the research and analysis of two Associates and three Analysts. Our technical and quantitative strength allows these teams of six undergraduates to support and test conclusions rigorously. Teams also receive specialized training once staffed to further refine the skills needed for the particular case. Our case teams typically deliver written reports, quantitative models, white papers, and other forms summarizing our work and findings.
