As a student, I had already heard a lot about strategy consultants. In 2012, I signed up for the Bain Strategy Challenge to really experience what strategy consulting is like. Never have I regretted my application, because this business course exceeded my expectations and convinced me that Bain was the place where I wanted to work!

The first thing that thrilled me was the fact that we used real data to crack a real case. We launched a survey overnight to make sure we could start analyzing "fresh" customer satisfaction data the next day! Furthermore, it was a pleasure to work in a group of highly motivated and smart people who all tried their best to solve the case.

I found it even more important and exciting that, throughout the Bain Strategy Challenge, I really got to know Bain's best asset: the people. I got the opportunity to speak with a lot of Bainies who could answer all of my questions not only during case work, but also during the nights. The openness and the energy of the people who I can now call my colleagues was the thing that inspired me the most.

After completing Bain's ten-week internship program, I gladly signed my offer for a full-time associate consultant position at the end of 2013. I would highly recommend participating in this year's Bain Strategy Challenge not only because it is a lot of fun, but also because it offers one of the best strategy consulting hands-on experiences!
