Associate Consultant Internship
Associate Consultant Internship
We welcome students enrolled in a three or four-year undergraduate degree (bachelor’s) program with one full summer left before graduation for an immersive summer internship. It’ll offer broad exposure to the management consulting industry. You’ll be staffed on one of our case teams and do real work interfacing with clients. If successful, you’ll be offered a job as an associate consultant.
Work on a real team and develop your business acumen
This is a unique opportunity to work as an associate consultant at a top strategy consulting firm. It begins with one week of training after which point you’ll be staffed on a real case team where your background, opinion, and insights matter.
