Working Abroad


At BCG, you’ll have the opportunity to work with—and be inspired by—diverse teams of fellow BCG professionals from more than 80 offices in 46 countries. You’ll be able to experience business on a genuinely global scale and learn how to bring together people from different cultures to uncover insights that challenge the status quo.


Working abroad can be life changing, exposing you to issues and ideas that will ignite your curiosity and expand your comfort zone. We offer a variety of opportunities to meet your evolving personal and professional needs over the course of your career.



  • Cross-office projects. Join a team of BCG consultants and experts working on a short-term project (typically less than six months) in another country—an opportunity to gain international experience without having to relocate.

  • Global programs. Select employees, with requisite experience, can participate in extended-stay assignments (typically one year) in one of our worldwide offices through our Associate Abroad, Ambassador, and Practice Area Ambassador programs.

  • Transfers. Move to another city, to a nearby country, or to another part of the world (typically 12 to 24 months or permanently). BCG’s global footprint gives you the flexibility to change locations according to your evolving needs or goals.

  • Secondments. Secondments allow select employees to gain experience outside BCG by working for up to a year at one of our private-sector clients, or for one of our global social-impact partners.


A Better Way to Work


BCG rose to No. 2 on Fortune's "100 Best Companies to Work For" list in 2015—the highest ranking, by far, among consultancies, and a reflection of our commitment to career sustainability and satisfaction.


At BCG, we believe that innovation can only thrive in an environment of openness, flexibility, and mutual respect--an environment where all ideas are heard regardless of tenure and people are supported to pursue a path that's right for them.


If that sounds different from other companies, it's because we work differently, too. Seeking a better way to manage case work and help our consultants sustain longer, more satisfying careers is a constant objective.


Who We Seek


You don’t have to fit into a mold at BCG—there isn’t one. We do, however, seek people with strong drive, relentless curiosity, the desire to create their own path, the ability to work collaboratively, and the passion and leadership to make an impact. Meet some BCGers, and learn more about what it’s like to work here, in this video.



As a member of one of our case teams, you’ll work with and learn from some of the best minds in business. Ideas, not tenure, matter to us, so you’ll be able to make an impact from day one. Working at BCG will help you develop the skills and confidence you need in a supportive environment that respects the views of every individual. Hands-on learning and innovative training programs will help you make the jump from the classroom to the real world of business. You may choose to further your education by pursuing an MBA or other advanced degree. In recent years, 90 percent of our staff who applied to a top-tier business school were accepted.


To fuel BCG’s creativity, we seek talented graduates from diverse academic backgrounds, including business, engineering, economics, science, and the humanities. BCG training will help you develop analytical, conceptual, and leadership skills, increasing your value at BCG and beyond. A career at BCG gives you the opportunity to work across many different fields and industries, so you can discover your own passion and expand the number of paths on which you can take your career—including entrepreneurially.
