What Empower Participants Are Saying

"BCG Empower was an experience like no other. Engaging with top leaders in the firm as well as future classmates and colleagues focused on the firms' future goals and mission was incredible. We had opportunities to ask questions about day-to-day life in the firm, practice our case interview skills and really get immersed in the culture of BCG. Empower did just that, it empowered us to step into the roles of future business leaders and understand the impact we can expect to have at such an incredible firm post-graduation. I’m so glad I participated and can’t wait to help the next class through their process as well!"
