Undergraduate, master’s or advanced degree

As a business analyst (BA), you will join our case teams and work alongside ACs and consultants, helping them solve our client’s most burning business issues. You will work on the same assignments as our ACs, but given your limited prior exposure to the business world, we work with you extensively to develop your skill set and promote you to an AC within six to 12 months.

We look for BA, AC and SAC candidates with strong analytic abilities and outstanding academic records. However, simply being eager, driven and smart will not earn you a spot on our team. Our team is made up of passionate people, who are uncomfortable with the status quo, who are supportive of one another and who like to have a little fun while solving real-world problems. Learn more about what Bain looks for.

Bain Kyiv recruits for full-time positions all year round. Our office will not be offering associate consultant internships for the upcoming summer.

Interviews

Bain’s interview process involves a series of case, written case and experience interviews to help us get to know you better. Since each of the case interviews will entail a discussion of an actual Bain case, you will also gain some insights into what it is like to work at Bain. We encourage you to prepare for your case interviews.

Successful candidates will participate in up to three rounds of interviews; each round will have two or three 45-minute interviews.

Prior to the first round of interviews, a written case interview will be given. The goal of the written exercise is to give you a sense of what the case interview will be like, as well as provide you with an opportunity to experience the day-to-day role of a Bain consultant by simulating our work process. Bain will provide you with 20 to 30 slides that describe a client situation and ask key questions pertaining to that client. We will then give you 60-90 minutes to review the slides and prepare a short synopsis of your insights and recommendations.

First round
You will meet with two Bain consultants or managers on your university’s campus, in our office or over the phone if you are invited to interview with Bain.

Your interviewer will present a short business problem and then ask you to structure the problem and recommend a practical solution. Your interview may begin with an opportunity to share your achievements and future goals. You should also have time at the end to ask your interviewer questions.

Second round and third rounds
Those successfully passing the first round will participate in a second and possibly third round of interviews, typically in our office. You will meet with Bain managers, principals or partners during these rounds, which will consist of two 45-minute case interviews. The third round interview will also consist of two 45-minute case and experience interviews.

During the experience interview, your interviewer will ask traditional resume and behavioral questions, as well as questions about a mini-case based on your experiences, to better understand you and your interest in Bain. If you do not receive an experience interview, you should expect experience interview-type questions in your case interviews.
