A Different Kind of Impact: Advanced Degree Careers at BCG

Do you have an advanced degree—a PhD, a JD, or an MD—and an interest in a business career? Then you should consider applying to BCG.

Conventional approaches rarely get our clients where they need to be. Our clients' toughest business problems require creative thinking and a combination of viewpoints, angles, and perspectives. As a consultant with an advanced degree, you'll make a different kind of impact.

Your fresh and distinct perspective is needed at BCG. You'll join a team of incredibly diverse backgrounds, where your intellectual curiosity, creativity, and problem-solving skills can make valuable contributions to client projects from day one.

A Unique Growth Opportunity

At BCG, you will continuously expand your areas of knowledge, enhance your skills, and advance your career in a way and at a pace unmatched by most other companies.

Our on-the-job apprenticeship model, as well as our extensive training and mentorship programs, will help you transition from the academic or scientific environment into the consulting world. We tailor training programs for consultants without a business background to provide a strong foundation for professional strategy consulting.

Through this experience, working at BCG will build bridges for you and open up additional paths, no matter where your interests guide you. You'll receive unparalleled opportunities for personal and professional growth.

Use and Expand your Expertise

As an advanced-degree candidate, you have already developed a specific set of skills and expertise. At BCG, you can choose to focus on the industry closest to your field of study or be exposed to completely new industries.

BCG’s broad portfolio of client work provides the ideal stage for exploring new fields and finding ways to leverage your analytical skills and topic expertise.

You can grow beyond your area of expertise by working with multiple clients across many industries and business functions, enhancing your intellectual leadership and ability to communicate with and inspire audiences in fields outside your area of specialization.
