There are two main styles of interviews at BCG:

The woman on the right, dressed in a vibrant red dress, is smiling and talking to the other woman, who is wearing a black business suit and is seen from the back. The setting is well-lit and features contemporary wooden furniture with lush green plants around, creating a relaxed yet professional atmosphere.

Skills interview

This interview is what most people would consider a traditional interview, where BCG assesses your skills and experience in relation to the role for which you have applied. You should avoid the temptation to simply reiterate your resume or CV. Make sure you come prepared to showcase your personality and your reasons for wanting to work at BCG.

Problem Solving Interview

If you’re applying for a client-facing position, you will be assessed on your problem-solving abilities during a case study interview. This interview will test your numerical skills, business knowledge, and communication style, as well as any technical expertises and specialist skills the role requires.

 Getting your interview preparation right.

As you prepare to interview at BCG, consider the interview process as an opportunity to find a good fit—between you, the role, and our culture and values. While we’ll assess your skills and experience and learn about your strengths, passions, and how you collaborate with others, you’ll have the chance to ask BCGers questions to become as familiar with us as possible. If you need a reasonable accommodation during your interview or application process, please let your recruiter know as soon as possible so they may assist in making the appropriate arrangements.
“The questions you ask at the end of your interview can really help you understand if you are a fit for BCG. My conversation with my interviewer convinced me even more that BCG was the right place.”
