Advice to Management
I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (London, England) in April 2011.
On campus interview (MBA), with two rounds back to back. The interviews were both case studies, giving an initial brief of the problem verbally, laying out the situation with limited information, where you are expected to come up with relevant questions to prompt them to provide additional data in printed form.
Typically, the cases were single issue problems (cost saving, expansion) and where you are judged on how you structure the problem. This directly affects the questions you ask and the information you get (eg. competitor's costs). A part of solving the case would require you to make some calculations (eg. contribution margins for different products) which are fairly straightforward.
Good overall experience, with the interviewers maintaining a friendly and open approach.
Shalewa, a Consultant at BCG in New York, used to work for a big technology company and joined BCG in 2016. We asked Shalewa why she, an enthusiastic technologist, decided to join BCG and what has changed for her since.
Isabel shares her experience of joining BCG as a chemist without an MBA. Unsure if she wanted to pursue chemistry or consulting, she decided to choose both.
