Bain’s Summer Associate (SA) program lets MBAs or advanced degree candidates experience the real world of consulting while discovering what a future with Bain is like.
Your exciting, intensive summer—often at the global office of your choice—will start with a weeklong, off-site training course, where you’ll learn our core consulting skills. If you meet our performance expectations, you will receive an offer to return full-time as a consultant upon graduating.
After your training, you’ll work directly with case teams and clients to solve business problems and drive change, immersed in the responsibilities of a full-time Bain consultant. This includes:
- Working closely with full-time consultants, who will provide coaching and mentoring
- Working with clients from Fortune 500 companies, midsize firms, nonprofits and start-ups across many fast-changing industries like consumer goods and retail, technology and telecommunications, financial services, industrial products, private equity and more
- Presenting the results of your work to partners and clients
- Applying knowledge and skills from your first year of business school, and gaining access to an unparalleled range of opportunities
