Bain's Summer Associate (SA) program is more than just a summer internship. It’s a springboard to your whole career and could quite possibly be the best summer of your life. It’s an ideal opportunity for MBAs or advanced degree candidates [e.g., JD, PhD, MD] who would like to experience the real world of consulting while getting insight into what a future with Bain would be.

The program starts with an intensive training to learn core consulting skills. You’ll work alongside Bain knowledge experts tackling complex business challenges and use your skills to help drive change in a range of organizations from global leaders to start-ups. Most SAs are amazed at the wealth of industry knowledge, client management and communication skills they acquire. You’ll also have the opportunity to secure a full-time offer to join Bain as a consultant upon completion of your studies.
