At BCG, Storytellers synthesize complex information and ideas. They believe in bringing the whole team together to get a broader perspective. Rajiv connects the dots to see the bigger picture.
You'll be successful at BCG if you are always curious, always excited about the next knotty problem you need to solve.
My background is scattered across a number of industries and functions—so BCG was just the right home for me. Here I have been able to use my background in marketing, business development, and not-for-profit and combine it with the strengths of BCG's problem-solving approach. The results have delivered impact for the client, and helped the team along too.
I am very grateful to BCG for helping me forge such a large number of personal and professional relationships—across sectors and nationalities. I cannot imagine a better, more supportive corporate culture enabling us to do the type of work we do.
Rajiv earned an MBA (with distinction) from London Business School, after which he joined BCG. Prior to his MBA, he volunteered for a number of organizations, including the United Nations and AIESEC.

Q: What opportunities are you excited about at BCG, and beyond? What are your long-term goals?
