2016

"There is a lot of information to take in over three days but it was generally very helpful."
Intern, London
"There were a few days of IT, setup and general consulting training at the start. This was followed by rapid on-the-job training and I also had access to online training resources to fill in gaps. My supervisor did a great job at pacing my tasks to always stretch my ability without me feeling overwhelmed – that was probably the core of the learning experience."
Consulting, Intern, London

2015

"We all received basic accounting and Excel training but the precise skill-set each intern developed over the course of the internship was very case dependent. I learnt a huge amount about managing Macros and other Excel functions, as well as essential "softer" skills, such as how to communicate effectively with clients."
Intern, London
"I have picked up a variety of skills including: managing a challenging workload through prioritisation and delegation, slide writing, building models in Excel, key presenting skills."
Intern, London
"The first week was completely dedicated to a slimmed down version of the training that full time employees receive. I learnt about financial and accounting principles, management and presentation skills amongst many other things."
Intern, London
"I have become much more confident in my technical skills, and also my soft communication and presentational skills. These were honed by both formal training and on-the-job experience."
Intern, London

2014

"We had three days of formal training at the start which was very speedy but useful. I picked up a lot of skills (slide writing and Excel) during the internship. There are also online seminars available to develop specific skills."
Intern, London
"I found the training extremely useful before and during being staffed on a case."
Intern, London
"We had an induction for three days on how to use Excel and write PowerPoint slides, whilst the rest was on-the-job training."
Intern, London
"We had three days of training during the first week, and the rest of our training has been on-the-job. There is a vast resource of online training materials which BCGers have access to. This includes how to format PowerPoint slides and design Excel models, through to case experience in particular industry areas."
Intern, London
"We had an introduction to some financial background, and Excel, PowerPoint, etc. Training was also given on organisation, management, strategic thinking, and efficiency."
