Pursuing an MBA

Obtaining an MBA is not a prerequisite for a promotion at Bain. Individuals who would like to pursue their careers without an MBA will have other professional development opportunities, such as participating in Bain’s six-month transfer program or an externship.

A select group of business schools are covered by Bain’s MBA policy. To be eligible, consultants must have worked at Bain for at least two years and be considered "on-track" performers. They must also commit to rejoining Bain upon receiving their degree.

Consultants wanting to pursue their MBA degree will receive our help completing their applications and getting personal recommendations. They will also receive funding to pay for tuition and fees.
