What will participation at Bridge to BCG entail?
Our 2020 Bridge schedule and host cities are:
If invited to Bridge to BCG, you can expect to attend the workshop closest to your school, but due to capacity constraints and conflicts it is possible that you'll be placed in another program. You will be asked to mark all sessions you can attend in the Bridge application.
Update: BCG is closely watching the developments associated with COVID-19. The health and safety of our attendees remains our top priority, therefore we are exploring other possible forms this program may take. We will inform all applicants if and when there is a change in the time and format as we closely monitor the situation.
Bridge to BCG is open to PhD, JD, MD (including MD/MBA), and postdoc students currently residing in the US or Canada and looking to start full-time with BCG in 2021.

No. You can plan to attend the Bridge to BCG program closest to your campus or home, but you are not required to apply to the host office for full-time work. Candidates who attend Bridge are interested in many different BCG offices. When submitting your Bridge application you will be asked to select your office preferences for full-time work.
Absolutely! Since this is a nationwide program with limited spots, we have to take several factors into consideration when determining our invite list. If you are not invited to Bridge, we still encourage you to reapply in July 2020 for a full-time position. Your Bridge application will not hinder your chances of getting an invite to interview for full-time work.
Yes, but it is not a case interview! As part of the Bridge to BCG application you are asked to complete a one-way video interview. At BCG, we're interested in getting to know you beyond your resume and hope to understand why you're interested in a consulting career.
BCG looks for ADC candidates who have illustrated a history of achievement and leadership inside and outside the classroom, are stellar communicators, and are passionate about problem solving. Candidates should not only highlight their academic qualifications but also the ways in which they've begun to look beyond academia for experience.
Yes. All travel and accommodations are covered for out-of-town guests. In addition, all meal and reasonable expenses associated with the program are covered for all attendees.
