Opportunities for MBA Candidates

MBA graduates typically join us as associates, working either as generalists or practice consultants, depending on their preference and interests. MBA candidates in-between their first and second year may apply for an associate intern position—this is usually a 10-week internship during the summer.

If you have recently been accepted into a full-time US MBA program, you may be interested in learning more about our Emerging Scholars program.  This is a scholarship and networking opportunity for pre-MBAs at selected full-time programs that typically has a spring application deadline.
