Role Profile

Applicable for second year undergraduate students at the University of Cape Town, Stellenbosch University and the University of Pretoria only. Grow@BCG is a remarkable opportunity to experience the world of consulting in your second year. This exclusive program includes an intense three-day all-expenses paid trip to Sandton for training at our BCG offices. You will then join a three/four month case competition where you and your team help to answer a live case question posed by a real client. Here teams simulate a BCG team, guided by a BCG consultant. At the end of the competition, each team will present their findings to the client. And of course, the winning team will be awarded a grand prize. Further to the actual competition and accompanying training, each Grow@BCG participant will receive a mentor as well as extra case practice opportunities to help him/her prepare for the BCG Visiting Associate (internship) program the following year (open to third years). To find out more about BCG’s second year program, apply to attend this exclusive information sharing event on 1 May 2019 here: Please include your CV, university transcripts and matric marks (or equivalent if non-SA) for this event application.
