Internships

The Role of the Summer Associate

Our Summer Associates are top-performing undergraduates who are interested in gaining insight into a consulting career. This internship involves 8-10 weeks of real casework experience working as part of a team.

Associates are the core of our case teams. The insights we develop for our clients are based on the strong research and analytical skills of our Associates. As a Summer Associate, your work streams are the same as our full-time Associates. While individual tasks can vary, you may be responsible for primary and secondary data gathering and analysis; leading interviews with key stakeholders; and working with the team to derive insights, conclusions and recommendations based on your work. A Summer Associate will learn how to transform his or her work into clear insights for the client.

You’ll also have the same development support as our full-time Associates. The summer kicks off with a one-week training event to prepare you for the role. You’ll be paired with a mentor team to provide you with guidance and coaching throughout your internship. Most importantly, your case experience will fully immerse you in our apprenticeship model.
