There is no GBS - Global business services. If it is there then there will not be BCN - Bain capability network. Both are same thing - offshore support business unit.


So wanted to share the actual answer, BCN is basically something like Mckinsey Knowledge Center you can think of these guys as experts on certain analysis or workstreams in typical Bain Front end cases. Mostly they support Front end teams and help them with conducting various analysis, sometimes they also work directly with the client on certain products that they have expertise on. By products I mean a set of analysis or processes generally performed together.
GBS is global business services which is HR admin Payroll Finance IT all such business functions they are common to Bain and BCN as BCN is a bain entitity.
