Consulting Roles: Traditional Track

Consulting is the heart of our business, and our consultants are the heartbeat. BCG consultants go deeper to solve our clients’ biggest challenges and make a positive, lasting impact on their businesses and the world.

As a member of our consulting team, you’ll work alongside some of the world’s top minds on cases that reshape business, government, and society. You’ll collaborate on challenging projects with team members from many backgrounds and disciplines, increasing your understanding of complex business problems from diverse perspectives and developing new skills and experience to help you at every stage of your career—at BCG and beyond.

Consulting work is varied and rigorous, much of it performed at our client sites. Projects can vary in length, size, and location, depending on the client’s challenge. Because our clients operate all over the world, you may travel internationally. If you are joining us directly from school, expect to work with a wide range of clients and projects right from the start—from helping to devise the integration strategy for a pharmaceutical merger to developing sustainable farming practices in emerging countries.

As your career advances, you’ll begin to specialize in one or more practice areas, guided every step of the way by BCG mentors and world-class learning programs designed to meet your individual needs. Experienced professionals with knowledge and skills in a particular discipline or industry may also choose our expert career track to stay focused on that area of interest.
