Accelerate your career with a weekend in Barcelona
Accelerate your career by spending a weekend in Barcelona with Bain. Bainworks is an opportunity to mix with some of your brightest peers in an action-packed setting that gives you a taste of what it's like to work for a top global consulting firm. The weekend will consist of interactive case studies, networking opportunities and the chance to meet with senior consulting teams at Bain.
We are looking for university students from all fields of study with strong academic backgrounds, exceptional personalities, sharp analytical skills and the drive to make an impact.
Please review the list of participating countries and qualifications required to attend and keep checking back for information on the 2019 event.
Bainworks will be held on 18-20th October 2019 in Barcelona on exclusive seaside premises.
English will be the language of the event, as participants range from Germany, Spain, Switzerland, Russia, the Nordics, Belgium, Poland and South Africa.
You can see the offices involved in the event below. Please select the office that you are most interested in learning more about and apply with them. Please apply to only one office and please note that some offices require the fluency in the local language to qualify to apply.
We will cover all costs for your travel to the country as well as for board and lodging.
To enter Spain, you need only a valid passport or identity card. Entry requirements can change on short notice, and you should check in advance any updated requirements that might be applicable. You can find further information on the website of Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation.
An invitation to an event does not automatically qualify you for an internship or full-time job. However, it is a great first step towards getting to know us better and what management consulting is.
You are welcome and encourage you to apply to our internships and/or full time positions regardless of the outcome of your application to Bainworks. We receive a large number of applications for Bainworks and have to apply strict selection criteria.
For further questions on our application process, Bainworks or Bain in general, please contact us.
Based on the latest business topics and work we have done with our clients, the case study is an example of a real Bain client case. We hope it gives you a snapshot of what we do and how the days of a management consultant look like.
This year, you will help the client embed sustainability in the core of their strategy and operations to make it a source of ongoing and increasing value, as the normal rules of business don’t stop when it comes to corporate responsibility!
You will help the client address critical issues related to sustainability strategy, the environmental and social impact of operations, stakeholder engagement, and sustainability-related growth and cost opportunities. You will develop a strategy that addresses social, environmental and economic issues while focusing on the areas that are integral to the core business strategy and will achieve a positive material impact.
More precisely, you will address the plastics challenge! Plastics have changed the world. However, the rapid growth of middle-class and industrial economies has drastically increased the world's plastic consumption in recent decades – and infrastructure development has not kept pace. The result is a dramatic increase in plastic waste. Together, we can help end the flow of plastic waste into the environment. Are you up for the challenge?
University students from all fields of study with strong academic backgrounds, exceptional personalities, sharp analytical skills and the drive to make an impact are encouraged to apply.
