Our Programs

Introducing Bain's ADvantage internship - a highly selective program designed exclusively for Advanced Degree candidates seeking a one-week immersion into life at Bain and a career in consulting. The program includes a full day of training followed by four days of a staffing assignment on a real Bain case team. ADvantage interns will participate in our client work, travel with us (case dependent), and manage their own work stream. The week will also offer a variety of social activities and provide many opportunities to meet the members of our team and experience our rich and unique culture.

2019 ADvantage Dates & Locations: 

ADvantage internships will take place in select Bain offices across the US during the summer of 2019.  If you are interested in applying to our 2019 program(s) and are planning to graduate in 2020, please check back in early 2019 for more information on the dates and location offerings. If you are currently a postdoc or in your residency program, the 2020 graduation requirement does not apply and we welcome your application.

Application & Interviews: 

An on-time application and two, successful standard case interviews are requirements for admittance into the program. Interested candidates should expect an application due date in early April and a decision returned on their application by mid-May. Successful applicants will be invited to interview for the program in late May/early June. Applicants should apply to the program(s) in offices where they would happily accept a full-time Bain offer.

Eligibility & Full-Time Offers: 

The ADvantage internship is intended for candidates that are currently enrolled in an advanced degree program (PhD, JD or MD) or that are working in a postdoc or medical residency/internship program. Eligible candidates will be located in North America and pursuing a full-time Consulting career in 2020. Candidates that apply must be available for the full duration of the program week. At the conclusion of the program, successful interns will receive expedited final-round interviews for our 2020 full-time Consultant offers, most likely in the city where they completed their internship.

New on the job search or recently considering a career in consulting? Please join us for an introductory session where we’ll introduce Bain & Company, the consulting industry more broadly, and the application and interview process for those interested in pursuing a career with Bain. 

2019 CAC Dates & Locations: 

CAC events will take place in select Bain offices, on certain campuses, and online. If you are interested in attending one of our 2019 program(s) and are planning to graduate in 2020, please check back in early 2019 for more information on the dates and location offerings; we anticipate most programs will take place in the March-April timeframe. If you are currently a Postdoc or in your residency program, the 2020 graduation requirement does not apply and we hope to meet you at one of our events!

Registration:

There is no formal application process for admittance into our CAC programs. Interested candidates will be asked to complete an online registration survey which includes an upload for a copy of their resume.

Eligibility: 

CAC events are intended for candidates that are currently enrolled in an advanced degree program (PhD, JD or MD) or that are working in a postdoc or medical residency/internship program. Eligible candidates will be focused on starting their full-time career in 2020, and for certain events where space is limited, school restrictions may apply. Each event will have similar content so please register only for the event where you meet the eligibility criteria.
