BCG Unlock

Pre-MBA Summer Program

BCGers don't just unlock potential in their clients. They unlock it in each other.
BCG Unlock is a summer learning program that introduces incoming MBAs to the people, insight, and experiences that will enrich their skills, knowledge, and relationships as they set out on the exciting-yet-challenging journey ahead.

​​​​​​​As a participant in BCG Unlock, you can expect personal, candid dialogue with BCG consultants and leaders, as well as your pre-MBA peers. You’ll also get a behind-the-scenes look at our transformational work and digital capabilities, and dive deep into the opportunities, support systems, and tools we offer to help our people be their best. Every conversation will be an opportunity for you to ask the questions that are on your mind as you begin your life-changing year in these evolving times.
BCG Unlock participants must be enrolled in one of the full-time MBA programs listed below, beginning in the fall of 2021. Please note, the program is for those entering their first year of a full-time two-year MBA program (this program is not for second year MBAs). If you are a dual degree student, you are eligible to apply and we encourage you to do so the spring before you begin the first year of your MBA program (i.e. MD/MBAs, JD/MBAs, etc).

Eligible programs are:
Unlocking Diverse Talent
At BCG, we believe our success hinges on our ability to elevate diversity of thought and experience, and we aim to recruit passionate, open-minded people of all ethnicities, gender identities, sexual orientations, abilities and experience.

Please indicate your interest in these programs in the provided space on your Unlock application. You are welcome to apply to and attend multiple programs.
