The PYPC Case Competition will rotate campuses each year. This year the first round will be hosted virtually and the final round will be in-person at Princeton!

What is the Penn-Yale-Princeton-Columbia (PYPC) Case Competition?

The Penn-Yale-Princeton-Columbia Case Competition is an annual event hosted by the Penn Graduate Consulting Club (PGCC), Yale Graduate Consulting Club (YGCC), Princeton University Graduate Consulting Club (PUGCC), and Columbia Graduate Consulting Club (CGCC). It provides a valuable opportunity to advanced degree candidates, Master’s students, and undergraduates to gain experience in a consulting career. The four institutions host PYPC on a rotating basis. For the 2024 Case Competition, the PYPC lead organization is PUGCC (Princeton).

What benefits can you gain from participating in the PYPC Case Competition?

Gain exposure to the world of consulting by working in a team of 4-5 people to solve a real-life case prompt. This is a fantastic opportunity if you are interested in a consulting career: it will allow you to sample consulting and better develop your skills, with direct feedback from professional consultants. This event will have numerous benefits for your career development, including exclusive networking opportunities with professional consultants, firm recruiters, and other candidates from top schools. Earn valuable insight into applying with an offer-holder panel and professional consultant Q&A session. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top 3 winning teams!
