Application and Interview Process at BCG in Copenhagen
Experienced Professionals - Bring Your Experience To Work
Our Clients' audacious goals can bring complex challenges and Experienced Professionals bring value to BCG's world-class consulting strategies in many ways: through demonstrated success, depth of knowledge, practical experience and an ambition to do more.
They join the group midcareer for many reasons: either seeking more impact in their work or looking for a bigger challenge.
Crack the Case is our annual social impact case competition that aims to solve the most acute societal issues in partnership with an NGO. Students from different schools and study lines across Denmark come together to create real impact on a company.
This is your chance to try on the consultant's shoes for three days inside the beautiful amusement park and pleasure garden in the city center of Copenhagen, Tivoli.
It is also a great networking opportunity as you get to meet many other brilliant students, BCG consultants, participate in social events, and have a lot of fun.
For a sneak-peek of the program, you can have a look at the video above from Crack the Case 2022.
Our Project Leader, Sidsel Green, joined Crack the Case in 2016 and won together with her team.
Our Women Mentorship Program is your unique opportunity to explore a career path within BCG. The purpose of the program is to create a network for aspiring women who wish to develop their problem solving capabilities while gaining insight and knowledge about management consulting.
When being a part of the program, you will have the opportunity to attend several insightful dinners and events where you will meet and interact with BCG consultants. As a mentee, you are guaranteed an associate or visiting associate interview with BCG Copenhagen. Our consultants, as well as other professionals, will make sure to provide you with all the support and guidance you need in order to prepare for the interview.
The Women Mentorship Program runs twice a year (Spring and Fall). So make sure to keep an eye out for the next WMP deadline!
Doing Business In (DBI)
DBI is our annual case competition abroad. When joining this program, you will spend approximately two weeks abroad solving a real-life case for Novozymes.
During your time abroad, you will be collecting knowledge from different companies and workshops that you will be able to use for the case solving. The trip will also be packed with social activities and networking opportunities. You will return to Denmark with new experiences, new learning, and lifelong friendships.
“Participating in Doing Business In was an extraordinary experience that I highly recommend. The diverse selection of talented participants and opportunity to visit so many pioneering companies made the trip unforgettable.
As a student with a background in biological engineering, I sincerely appreciate the insight I gained in the consulting industry and how my knowledge and skillset can be applied in this context.” - Casey, Doing Business In San Francisco 2022.
BCG Nordic Event In London
Find out how you can be a part of BCG’s exceptional growth in the Nordics and learn more about the career opportunities available to you. Hear more about our legacy of innovation, digital transformations and the impactful work that has been the key to BCG’s success in the Nordics.
"With a background in Law, where consulting is less of a traditional career choice, being a Visiting Associate at BCG was a unique opportunity for me to get a hands-on experience on what it means to be a consultant."
"[At BCG] you are encouraged to step out of your comfort zone, to think about your strenghts and how you can build on those qualities but also to think about what areas you can develop to be an even better version of yourself."
“The first time I applied to BCG, my application was rejected, even before getting an interview. I worked hard after that, improved my grades, studied abroad, and had other great job experiences. I applied to BCG again 1.5 years later and received an offer.”
“The best thing about this part of the job is how one really gets to multiply the impact delivered. We work in super diverse and multidisciplinary teams across BCG’ers and clients, and in that setting, when everything ‘clicks’, the impact we can achieve in a short amount of time is incredible.”
“It is not just about recruiting people to fill out the empty seats in our company. It is about finding a group of diverse individuals who will contribute their knowledge and skills, drive the company forward, and define its future.”

Perspectives of life as a new BCGer
"From my very first case, I quickly learned that you are given a lot of responsibility - no matter your tenure. Now after having experienced a few cases, I am impressed by the thorough feedback system and continuous willingness to teach from the people I have worked with. Naturally, this is accompanied by an expectation of a willingness to learn. My current case is a travel-case, which includes flying to London every week. This is a great opportunity to dive even deeper into the casework and, importantly, to get to know my team and the client really well. This social aspect is an invaluable part of BCG - when you spend a lot of time with great people, you tend to become friends along the way."
