Want a sneak preview of what it means to be a consultant? Are you intrigued by the possibility of charting your own career path? Do you seek to move beyond mere theory to make a lasting difference? Do you consider team work an opportunity for personal growth? If so, we encourage you to apply for an internship at BCG, the world’s leading company in strategy consulting.
BCG’s award-winning internship programs give students from a range of disciplines the opportunity to learn more about what a career in consulting can offer. Our interns work on real projects and are mentored by BCG consultants, getting the true feel of the BCG experience and the life of a consultant.
All interns are assigned to client projects and given responsibility for particular portions of the work. They participate in case team meetings and interact with client teams, experiencing the day-to-day work of professional consultants. The work offers many opportunities for interaction not only with BCG principals and partners, but also with senior client leaders.
Lasting for two to three months, an internship is an ideal “mutual fit” assessment—as you get to know the consulting business, BCG also gets to know you. Orientation and training sessions aimed at providing additional insight into the consulting profession are offered throughout the internship.
The program is also a good way to meet BCG’s most important asset—its people. By attending training sessions, working on case teams with other consultants, and participating in office social events, summer interns can get to know the people they may one day work with at BCG.

When my module was discussed at meetings, I was the person to answer any questions, even with the partner and project leader there.
