Working as an intern at BCG is more than an opportunity to bolster your resume. It also offers the potential to launch a career at BCG, as a vast majority of our interns receive offers for full-time positions.
As a BCG intern, you’ll be able to apply what you’ve learned at school and through personal experience to a real client challenge. You’ll work with and be mentored by BCG consultants, and you’ll take responsibility for specific components of a client project. As a case team member, you’ll gain a 360-degree perspective on life as a BCG consultant—from working on client projects to socializing with colleagues.
Internships at BCG Switzerland are twelve weeks long. Some interns travel—including abroad—but return to their home offices at the end of each week for special events and social activities. This helps them meet other interns, get to know BCG consultants, and have some fun along the way.
My internship experience with BCG stood out because of the high degree of responsibility and senior client interaction I had on day one.
By asking questions we might not ask, interns challenge the very core of our assumptions. These questions are sure to lead us to more balanced, considered solutions.
An internship at BCG is all about unparalleled experiences, learning, and friendships.
Before your start, we’ll work with you to understand your interests and assign you to a case that aligns with your personal and professional goals. Past interns have helped solve a range of interesting challenges, from uncovering why a US technology company was losing market share in Europe to determining the best strategy for a luxury-goods brand to enter China.
Orientation and training sessions aimed at providing additional insight into the consulting profession are offered throughout your internship, giving you a complete view of what it would be like to work as a BCG consultant after you graduate.
We seek people with strong drive, curiosity, and the desire to create their own path. Internships are offered to university students (bachelor, master, or PhD) between their fifth semester and graduation, with good academic achievements and relevant experience through previous internships and abroad.
