The global leader in management consulting, BCG (Boston Consulting Group), has officially launched its 2020 Mentorship scheme.

In seeking out the best and the brightest students for their 2020 Mentorship Scheme, BCG has now opened applications for students entering their final year of study. Please note that this scheme is open to students of all disciplines and does not require any previous experience or interest in consulting. First, a little bit from BCG:

“As a top-tier strategy firm, we seek to change the way the world works. We form partnerships with our clients to solve their biggest challenges and shape their future together. The work our consultants do has a lasting impact on companies, industries and society and, as a result, we are always looking for creative, driven and collaborative personalities to join our consulting team.  If you think that sounds like you, a career at BCG may be a great fit.

We will match selected students with one of our consultants to offer 1-to-1 mentorship over the summer so you’re ready to make a strong application in October. You’ll have the chance to ask all your consulting questions and get advice on how to best prepare for interviews (incl. CV advice, case practice, and other tips & tricks). It is a great opportunity for you to get to know us, while getting useful advice and practice for the upcoming interview season!”

Applications for this rare opportunity are open from now until the 3rd of July, 2020. To apply, you will need to submit both your CV and your answer to the following question:

“Can space travel become a successful tourist industry?”

An answer might consider the following:

  • The size of the potential market
  • Barriers to entering the market
  • Current competitors
  • The needs of the potential consumer
  • Trends in the current tourism market

Your answer can be in any format, but as a general guideline, one of the following formats is suggested:

  • A half-page word document
  • 2 or 3 PowerPoint slides
  • 1 minute video/audio “elevator pitch”

It is recommended that you spend no more than 2-3 hours researching – BCG will be assessing you based on how you think, not what you know.

To apply, please click here to submit your CV and your answer to the question (attaching your answer to the question as a file in the ‘Other’ section). Should you wish to submit a video file, audio file or if you have any further questions, you can send it to

Please do not hesitate to contact us via our social media channels should you have any further enquiries regarding the scheme or the application process for it.
