About The Boston Consulting Group Summer Internship Program

The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) is a global management consulting firm and the world's leading advisor on business strategy. BCG was founded in 1963 and is a private firm comprised of almost 14,000 total staff working in 85 offices in 48 countries, with 2016 revenues of $5.6 billion. BCG partners with clients in all sectors, industries and regions to identify their highest-value opportunities, address their most critical challenges and transform their businesses. BCG's expertise includes functional practices such as corporate development, global advantage (globalization), information technology, marketing & sales, organization, operations, strategy, social impact; and industry practices such as consumer & retail, energy, financial institutions, health care, industrial goods, insurance, public sector and technology, media & telecommunications.

The Boston Consulting Group offers you an unparalleled opportunity for both personal and professional growth and development. No two experiences are alike and the skills you acquire will position you for success within and outside of BCG.

BCG is staffed by consultants who combine industry experience with acute strategic and analytical skills. They come from a variety of backgrounds, reflecting the diversity of perspective we value. Most assignments involve one or more teams of three to six BCGers; specifically, the typical BCG team is made up of one to two partners, a project manager, and several consultants/associates who work with a similar group of client staff. The standard team combines consultants with relevant technical and industry backgrounds with others who have functional and strategic skills. We also strive to incorporate a mix of seniority and skills to balance the capabilities needed for the project with a sound budget plan. We create value by customizing our approach to complement client capabilities and the issues at hand.

We believe consulting is a process, not a product. Our goal is to guide, develop, facilitate, and enrich each client's strategy development process. Our consulting practice depends on close teamwork between the client's organization and our staff. Clients often remark that a valuable and unusual aspect of working with BCG is the firm's commitment to joint discovery of insights and strategies, and to building the experience base and skills of its client's organization. Team interaction centers on intensive analysis of objective data and open discussion of logic and conclusions. This type of collaborative work is complemented by objective research of the competitive environment, including competitor analysis and capability benchmarking.

Our teams work with client members from all levels of the organization in order to integrate our staff's strategy, operational, and industry experience with the client's knowledge of its particular situation, culture, and constraints.

The goal of the summer program is to give summer interns an opportunity to get to know our business and our people well. We expect the summer staff to assume responsibilities like those of new permanent consulting staff and to serve as full members of case teams.
