Joining BCG with an MBA

Do you love a challenge? Seek the opportunity to have your ideas heard at the highest level? Are you driven to make a difference?

A career at BCG will have you working in close collaboration with influential clients on high-stakes issues. You’ll have an impact from day one, helping clients truly transform their businesses rather than merely delivering incremental results. 

You'll form deep relationships with a diverse group of exceptional colleagues who will support and inspire you. Our case teams share many similarities with MBA study groups, brainstorming together to create maximum value. At BCG, we’ll help get you ready to take on any challenge you choose, inside or outside the firm, by providing you with the support, best-in-class training, and opportunities you need to become a leader responsible for real and lasting impact.

Make an Immediate Impact

As a trusted advisor to the world's most influential businesses, governments, and nonprofits, BCG has a legacy of developing game-changing ideas. We don't work on clients, we work with our clients to understand their unique situations and uncover insights that help them know what needs to be done. With BCG's customized approach, ideas trump tenure, and our case teams take ideas from all levels in order to deliver breakthrough results to our clients.


Accelerate Your Career with Vast Options

At BCG, the depth and breadth of experiences you’ll have within the firm will deepen your knowledge and further your career. You'll build your skill set and talents by working with leading organizations on a wide range of complex problems and their toughest challenges. BCG has expertise in more than 40 industries and capabilities, and you will have the ability to learn and grow in every direction. Our individualized mentorship combined with in-depth and innovative training and development programs help you develop analytical, conceptual, and leadership skills, increasing your personal effectiveness at BCG and beyond—like our many successful alumni.

Success Through Collaboration

It's pretty simple: we want to help our clients and each other succeed. At BCG, collaboration is key and at the heart of our work. As a member of one of our case teams, you’ll work with and learn from people from a diverse and broad set of backgrounds—including business, engineering, economics, science, and the humanities—working together on teams that are tailored for each client. When we ask our clients for feedback, the number one thing they most frequently highlight is our collaborative approach toward working through challenges and solving problems as a single entity. Life is not all case work, of course. Each BCG office has its unique set of social and cultural events, athletic teams, and volunteer opportunities.

I was unsure whether a job after an MBA would give me as much scope to challenge my mind as the research career I had left behind, but BCG clearly proved me wrong!

Supportive Environment, Sustainable Career

At BCG, we believe there is a better way to work, and we create opportunities that allow our consultants to define the way that is right for them. Our global PTO (predictability, teaming, and open communication) program increases work predictability and career sustainability by optimizing the case team experience. Flexibility@BCG enables you to attain your professional and personal goals through enhanced and adapted work options and the ongoing support to manage them. We consistently work to create an environment of flexibility and support for our employees and the work they do.

Join a Legacy of Innovation

BCG facilitates and emphasizes a culture of innovation—and a passion to challenge the status quo. Through initiatives like the BCG Henderson Institute, the Center for Customer Insight, the Centre for Public Impact, the Center for Health Care Value, new businesses such as BCG Digital Ventures, and partnerships with TED, we continue this tradition of pioneering new and innovative ideas that reshape the competitive landscape, influencing the way business leaders think and adding value to society.

Experience Global Business Firsthand

With so many clients who come to us for expertise on a global scale, there are tremendous international opportunities available to you early in your career at BCG. More than 25% of our consultants work outside their home countries every year, and about half work in global teams led and staffed by BCGers from other parts of the world. With more than 90 locations in 50 countries, working abroad takes many forms at BCG: global Ambassador programs, which staff early-career consultants in a different country's office for up to a year; cross-office projects; office transfers; and secondments, where you work for up to a year at a client or with our global social impact partners.
