The YCP Internship provides you with a great opportunity to experience various aspects of business management and investments while developing your professional skills. By working alongside professionals, you will own and lead different projects during your time here in YCP
What to expect
1) To gain exposure to hands-on management consulting in a wide array of industries
YCP provides management services to clients in different industries. From consumer goods and retail, to food and beverage, fashion, manufacturing or even technology, your exhilarating journey at YCP will put you in the centre of various industries- all while solving complex issues through a very hands-on approach.
2) To gain relevant experience in business operations in Asia, working alongside the network of YCP professionals located in key regions
Much of the potential in Asia is still locked up, undiscovered and waiting to be explored. With a focus on business operations in Asia, YCP provides interns the chance to learn about business management and expansion within and across Asia, not just from a top-down management perspective, but operationally from a bottom-up approach as well.
3) To work closely and learn from YCP professionals, who bring in-depth knowledge and experience from their previous companies (e.g. Goldman Sachs / P&G / BCG / Bain & Co. / McKinsey etc.)
YCP aims to provide interns with one of the best learning experiences- and one of the many ways we do this is through on the job training and working closely alongside YCP professionals who bring a wealth of experience and knowledge. Constant mentorship for our junior professionals and interns is something that we pride ourselves on.
4) To gain technical skills through YCP Academy via weekly seminars and monthly intensive workshops conducted by YCP Professionals (e.g. Finance, Marketing, Strategic Planning, Presentation Skills etc.)
On top of on-the-job training, you will be put through rigorous workshops which cover various functional topics to ensure holistic and all-rounded growth for all professionals and interns. Through these workshops and seminars, you will be equipped with various toolkits for solving today’s most complex problems.
5) Business travel opportunities around Asia, depending on project assignment
Interns will also get the chance to travel should the project demands for it. Through such overseas stints, you get to meet more professionals as well as other interns from other offices, which provides a chance for networking. Of course, we encourage our interns to work hard AND play hard- so you can expect gruelling but fulfilling trips.

My summer internship at YCP has been one of the most rewarding experiences in my professional life. I was given real assignments and responsibilities on the scale that I could not have expected from other internships. From day one, I was allowed to take an initiative in solving business problems such as addressing the declining profitability of a F&B business. The several projects that I was involved in served to develop and refine a comprehensive set of skills that are expected from any business students. Furthermore, the culture at YCP is what made my time here a truly pleasant one. I was not treated as an ordinary intern or a second-class citizen here. I was treated as a valuable member of the team and a part of the family.

With its global background, YCP creates an diverse and motivating environment where individuals could fully explore their potential and maximize the benefits for the group. During my internship at YCP, I had the chance to manage online marketing for an early childhood institution. Through cooperating with other team members and communicating with clients, I have developed the skills to adjust business strategies to meet clients’ needs and work under a high-pressured environment.
YCP’s tradition of weekly workshop shows how the company cares about its employee’s development. The opportunity to building business model and sharing ideas with colleagues gave me more insight on different industries and allowed me to hone my analytical skills. More importantly, I was able to bond with my coworkers and therefore inspired by their creative thoughts.
To me, the internship experience at YCP Holdings Ltd. triggered my interest in consulting because I find that as a consultant, I am able to articulate my personal mission, which is help people and organizations do whatever they do, but in a better way.

Ownership, Business Analysis and Professionalism.
These were the three biggest takeaways from my time at YCP as a summer intern.
During my internship I was mainly working on a turnaround project for a local SME. I had the chance to be exposed to many different business functions (supply chain, marketing, company financing etc) and assisted the project manager in analysing the key gaps in each function and executing the improvement plans. I was working very closely with the professionals from YCP which allowed me to grasp many business analysis skills. Most importantly, I gained a sense of ownership for the business and the tasks that I were assigned too.
I was also involved in 2 business research projects. This honed my technical abilities. I had to ensure that the outputs I delivered were professional and accurate
My time at YCP really provided exponential growth opportunities for me.

- Interned at YCP Hong Kong from Dec 2016 to Feb 2017
My internship experience at YCP was enjoyable, exciting and eye-opening. All my colleagues and supervisors are very bright and supportive. We worked hard and played hard. Here I was not given any mundane tasks, but had the opportunities to perform business due diligence, KOL marketing and market research for 3 projects just within 3 months. Even though the work was sometimes quite demanding, it helped to stretch oneself to the limit to speed up the learning curve. Furthermore, working at YCP allowed you to witness how a multinational management consulting and investment company is managed, and you can gain invaluable insights in multiple industries. I would recommend YCP internship to anyone who want to acquire practical business skills and challenge themselves to be high flyers.
