Working Abroad

From Abu Dhabi to Zurich, more than 25% of our consultants work outside their home countries every year, and about half work in global teams led and staffed by BCGers from other parts of the world.

Why limit your career to the confines of a cubicle when you can make the whole world your office?

At BCG, you’ll have the opportunity to work with—and be inspired by—diverse teams of fellow BCG professionals from more than 80 offices in 48 countries. You’ll be able to experience business on a genuinely global scale and learn how to bring together people from different cultures to uncover insights that challenge the status quo.

Working abroad can be life changing, exposing you to issues and ideas that will ignite your curiosity and expand your comfort zone. We offer a variety of opportunities to meet your evolving personal and professional needs over the course of your career.

Experience work and life in another country:

  • Cross-Office projects. Join a team of BCG consultants and experts working on a short-term project (typically less than six months) in another country—an opportunity to gain international experience without having to relocate.
  • Global Programs. Select employees, with requisite experience, can participate in extended-stay assignments (typically one year) in one of our worldwide offices through our Associate Abroad, Ambassador, and Practice Area Ambassador programs.
  • Transfers. Move to another city, to a nearby country, or to another part of the world (typically 12 to 24 months or permanently). BCG’s global footprint gives you the flexibility to change locations according to your evolving needs or goals.
  • Secondments. Secondments allow select employees to gain experience outside BCG by working for up to a year at one of our private-sector clients, or for one of our global social-impact partners.
  • Africa Talent Program. The Africa Talent Program offers exceptional candidates with strong ties to or interests in Africa an opportunity to spend one to two years at one of our offices in the US or Europe before joining one of our Africa offices.

BCG has provided me with a wide range of international opportunities—first working abroad while based in New York and then spending a year at BCG in Prague.

The Moscow office has a great mix of people from diverse backgrounds and countries, and we regularly interact with other offices, travel to different countries, and work with multinational client teams.

Thanks to BCG’s Global Ambassador Program, I have had the chance to live in Scandinavia and work for European clients. I have also been seconded to international organizations to work on global topics, such as supporting the World Economic Forum on sustainability in emerging markets.
