Is there active BCG recruiting on his campus? Or an advanced degree consulting club? He’d be best off building relationships there.

We have an Advanced Degree path, but no engineering consulting practice. What’s your cousin’s Ph.D. in?

PhD, MD, or JD only. There really are only three paths to enter BCG consulting: 1) MBA school recruitment 2) advanced degree recruitment 3) Experienced hire lateral recruit (for true industry experts) There’s BCG Gamma too which is our data science arm that takes Masters, but I’m not 100% sure what that looks like. https://www.bcg.com/en-us/careers/students/advanced-degrees

Recently went through the process as an ADC+ experienced hire, would be happy to share my experience with your cousin if that helps. Feel free to DM me.
