At Bain, we believe a key factor to our success at driving real impact for our clients is developing a diverse team with a wide range of points of view and creativity.

The timing of the program, held in August, is specifically designed to allow students to fulfill other obligations for the summer and then attend our program. The BEL program is available in most of our North American offices.
