What is the Visiting Associate consulting Program?

The Visiting Associate program is a 8-12 weeks consulting internship program designed for students and recent graduates who are looking to kickstart their careers in the world of strategic consulting. During the program, you will work on projects spanning various industries, so we are seeking individuals with diverse interests and an openness to development across different sectors. The Visiting Associate consulting internship program (VA-ship for short) can be commenced at the start of almost any month (not just during the summer!) and can be planned up to a year in advance. Our VAs work full-time, serving as integral members of Case Teams and taking on individual modules within projects for which they are responsible.

What does the recruitment process look like?

After passing the initial CV screening, the recruitment process consists of:
Online Case Assessment
This stage involves completing a 30-minute online test assessing your analytical skills and ability to solve business cases.
Round 1

This part of the recruitment process consists of two case interviews (2 x 1 hour), covering aspects related to your experience and motivation, as well as case-solving (solving a case study). At the end of the interview, you will have the opportunity to ask questions to the interviewer and get to know our company better.

Round 1 interviews are conducted by individuals in roles such as Consultant, Project Leader and Principals.

Round 2

This part of the process is analogous to Round 1. It includes two case interviews (2 x 1 hour).

However, Round 2 interviews are conducted by individuals in roles such as Principal and Partner.

How can you prepare for the process?

  1. Participate in events organized by BCG. You can find the latest information on upcoming initiatives on our social media channels and at events@BCG. Familiarize yourself with the materials available on the official BCG website, including Case Interview Preparation and the video training 'Crack the Case.'
  2. Practice solving business cases on the Case Coach platform which you will gain access to after passing Round 0.
  3. Explore books such as 'Case Interview Secrets' by Victor Cheng, 'Ace Your Case' - Wet Feet Insider Guide, and 'Vault Guide to the Case Interview' by Vault Inc."

Beyond VA-ship – what comes next?

During the Visiting Associate program, you will receive two formal evaluations - one midway through the program and one at its conclusion. Based on these evaluations, our Leadership Team will make a decision regarding offering you a position as a Full-Time Associate. We will also jointly decide on the most convenient start date for you. After the internship, you may choose to complete your studies or embark on an extended journey - no worries, we'll wait for you. You can postpone your start by up to 12 months.
