At BCG, Advocates are thoughtful and engaged. They listen closely because they believe that the best solutions can be discovered in the most unexpected places. Marielle challenges the status quo.
The best part of working at BCG is being surrounded by people with high energy and ‘can do’ spirit every day.
My background is in economics, and a career at BCG was not the obvious choice for me. But after meeting several people from the firm, I knew that this was the place for me.
The three best things about working at BCG are the people, the clients, and the challenges. It is unique to have the opportunity to work with so many smart people who have such great social skills. Everyone is highly motivated and grounded in a profound wish to make change for clients and for society as a whole. Furthermore, you get to work with some of the biggest and most influential companies in the world, constantly driving change and shaping the future of the industries we work in. No day is the same and no day is without a new challenge, making it virtually impossible to get bored!
Marielle holds a master’s degree in economics from the Norwegian School of Economics and Business Administration.
