Elizabeth Kaufman joined Boston Consulting Group in 1994. Her work focuses on the firm’s Education; Technology, Media & Telecommunications; and People & Organization practices. Beth has played a number of roles at BCG, including global manager for the Organization practice and worldwide knowledge leader.

In technology, Beth has worked with telcos, IT service providers, semiconductor companies, and mobile-payments players on strategic and operational issues, including CEO transition, business model redesign, and large-scale restructuring.

In education, Beth's engagements have ranged from higher education to K-12 and from for-profit to nonprofit groups.
