BCG is full of inspiring people who bring out the best in you. Working here helps me tremendously in reaching my full potential.
I learned about the existence of BCG in my first semester at the university when I encountered the “BCG matrix,” and I immediately thought it would be great to work for a firm that creates analysis techniques that can become global standards taught worldwide. Fortunately, I am able to confirm this hypothesis now.
Since I joined BCG, I have had the chance to learn a lot about multiple industries. Alongside the great team of people, the variety of projects is why I am enthusiastic about working here. BCG allows you to challenge yourself on a daily basis and provides a truly supportive environment for personal and professional development. You get to learn as much about yourself as the world while you are here.

Q: How has BCG helped you grow and succeed?
A: Your tasks here drive you to explore and make sense of the world. On top of it, BCG provides access to a variety of tools, trainings, and experts who help you on your way. You are given the means and the motivation to develop and learn, while creating significant impact. The general attitude of the people is very supportive. I feel comfortable asking anyone if I cannot figure something out on my own.
Q: What are you most curious about?
A: If I had to choose a specific topic, I would pick the implications of the exponential technological progress humanity has been experiencing. What is the nature of artificial intelligence? How will it affect our lives in the next decades? How can societal structures keep up with the pace technological change dictates? Will the speed of technological progress decrease after a while, or will it only become faster? In general, I am most interested in the dynamics of large systems. Because of my educational background, I have mostly had the chance to analyze the mechanisms of societal systems, but I am interested in theoretical physics, as well. (I am not academically skilled in it, but I try to understand as much of its principles as I can.)
Q: What are some of your volunteer or charitable work experiences?
A: I participated in BCG Budapest’s social impact initiative called Integrom, which aims to increase young Roma people’s employment chances at multinational companies. I held Excel trainings for the participants of the last Integrom training weekend, which I hope contributed to the participants’ job seeking success.
