Pursuing an MBA

Obtaining an MBA is not a prerequisite for being promoted at Bain. Individuals who would like to pursue their careers without an MBA will have other professional development opportunities including 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.
