About Bain & Company Associate Consultant Intern (ACI) and Summer Associate (SA) programs

As one of the world's most preeminent consulting firms, Bain has a proud 40+ year track record of helping the world's most influential organizations solve their toughest challenges. We have 50 locations in many of the world's most vibrant cities, most of which offer summer internship programs for top-performing undergraduate and MBA students.

The 10 week programs provide the opportunity to experience strategy consulting as a career choice with the possibilities of a full-time career upon graduation. Plus we combine this with comprehensive training including an immersive off-site program at the beginning of the summer on Cape Cod for all MBA interns from our global offices.

Interns will gain in-depth training in the critical skills needed for strategic business thinking, and continuous hands-on learning through full-time immersion on a Bain case team. Through real casework, interns will gain a thorough understanding of a client's operations, industry and the business challenges it faces. These are not internships for someone just looking to kill time over the summer.

The job is new and Bain interns are supported. From day one, each intern is paired with a consultant and a member of the leadership team who provide mentoring and coaching throughout the summer. Interns also have a lot of opportunity to meet the broader team through networking, educational and social impact events.

It is recommended that prospective interns follow Bain's social media feeds (via www.joinbain.com/connect) to learn more about their best-in-class summer offering.
