Bridge to BCG Consulting Workshop

Bridge to BCG is a three day summer workshop designed to help you test-drive the BCG project team experience.

By participating in them you will be able to:

  • Learn more about the consulting profession and get to know BCG
  • Participate in a realistic case experience
  • Learn from BCG's thought leaders
  • Meet and network with other advanced-degree candidates (ADCs) interested in a career in consulting


Bridge to BCG is specifically for candidates who are currently pursuing an advanced degree (PhDs, MDs, PostDocs, and JDs) at a school in North America and are looking to start a full time position at BCG in 2019. Candidates only holding a master’s degree are not eligible for this program. If you are interested in participating in 2018 Bridge to BCG and are graduating in 2019, please check this website in early 2018 for more information. If you are currently a practicing MD or in residency, the 2019 graduation date requirement does not apply.
