About Consult

The Consult mentoring programme is a partnership between BCG and Rare to develop candidates and increase the number of black graduates working in consulting.


Competition for consulting internships and graduate roles is fierce. The application and interview process is rigorous. BCG uses a range of assessments including interviews, case interviews, and numerical and case tests. Each year, applicants who are otherwise excellent fail these assessments.

With your hard work, and the support that Consult provides, you'll give yourself the best possible chance of securing a summer internship and a graduate position.
