Advanced Degree
​​​​​​​Candidates (North America)

Advanced degree candidates (ADCs) are students pursuing a PhD, postdoc, JD, or MD, and also current residents and practicing physicians. If you are interested in a business career, we encourage you to explore opportunities at BCG.

Conventional approaches rarely get our clients where they need to be. Our clients’ toughest business problems require creative thinking and a combination of viewpoints, angles, and perspectives. As a consultant with an advanced degree, you'll make a different kind of impact.

Your fresh and distinct perspective is needed at BCG. You'll join a team of incredibly diverse backgrounds, where your intellectual curiosity, creativity, and problem-solving skills can make valuable contributions to client projects from day one. At BCG, you will continuously expand your areas of knowledge, enhance your skills, and advance your career in a way and at a pace unmatched by most other companies.

We will help you transition from the academic or scientific world through our on-the-job apprenticeship model, mentorship opportunities, and extensive training program. We offer customized training programs for non-business background consultants to ensure a strong foundation for a successful career in strategy consulting.

We invite you to learn more about consulting and BCG through our upcoming events for advanced degree candidates. These virtual events allow you to meet our consultants and ask questions about BCG. Please scroll down to the botton of the page to see what dates and times our events are taking place and to register. We hope to see you there!

If you have any questions at all, don’t hesitate to reach out to ADC Recruiting team.
