“As someone just starting my career, I wanted to be exposed to different ideas and build different skills. BCG has really given me that and helped me develop a great consulting toolkit that I know will serve me no matter what I decide to do in the future.”

The Social Impact Immersion Program (SIIP) has provided me with unparalleled opportunities to make a meaningful impact at an early stage in my career. My first project as part of the program was helping develop a hydrogen hub to increase the supply of clean energy in the United States. I then worked with a non-profit to develop a strategy to expand an early college learning model. ”
