YOUNG ADVISORY GROUP ALUMNI

The Young Advisory Group adventure for consultants doesn’t end after their time at YAG. When our consultants leave, they have the opportunity to join the Young Advisory Group Alumni network. This network consists of 200+ former consultants who have ended up in all kinds of different jobs and branches. 

Some former consultants remain active in consultancy, such as at Berenschot, Deloitte, PwC, McKinsey, BCG and Bain. Other companies where our former consultants currently work are ASML, ING, Fokker, Shell, Adyen, ABN AMRO and many more. Several start-ups have also been set up by our alumni: Twenty Energy, Med-E Link, Bleeve, GreenHome and Finchy Media. 

The alumni meet regularly for a substantive and pleasant network event, and also share their knowledge and experiences with current consultants. The alumni also function as coaches for the current consultants. 

REGULAR TRAINING PARTNERS

YAG is trained and advised by professionals. The consultants’ knowledge and skills are continuously improving thanks to the close collaboration with three permanent training partners. In addition, with this collaboration, YAG is able to deliver high quality in the projects that YAG carries out.

OTHER TRAINING PARTNERS
