Advanced Degree

Advanced degree candidates (ADCs) are students pursuing a PhD, postdoc, JD, Non-MBA Masters 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.
If you have any questions at all, don’t hesitate to reach out to ADC Recruiting team.
