"During my internship at BCG Riyadh, I experienced firsthand the unique and enriching world of consulting. I got to work across different sectors, identifying solutions to a diverse range of challenges faced by client organizations, while interacting with professionals of all levels and backgrounds.

Beyond case work, I was pleasantly surprised by the level of investment BCG put into training, not only for its full-time staff, but also for its interns. I benefited from a monthly training program which helped me to develop very practical, real-life skills including problem solving, presenting, and slide writing (to name a few).

Interacting with BCG’s people was another highlight of the internship. I immersed myself in the vibrant culture, becoming part of a community that values and nurtures its members, and built lasting professional relationships.

This entire experience was immensely beneficial to me. I would wholeheartedly encourage others to join the BCG internship program. It's an invaluable opportunity to grow professionally, expand your networks, and explore if a career in consulting is for you."

“The Visiting Associate internship program was an enriching experience filled with unforgettable moments that have left a very positive, lasting impression on my professional journey.

The highlight of my internship was the personal development opportunities it provided. There wasn’t a single day that I didn’t learn something new. It was also reassuring joining the program with other like-minded fellows, who I could share any thoughts and concerns with. Together we have built lasting friendships, wonderful memories, and a strong support network.

I would recommend the internship to anyone looking for an enriching career experience. For me, it has marked the beginning of a very exciting journey into the consulting industry, something which I am forever grateful for since choosing to pursue my career in this field."
