Undergraduate or master’s degree

Who should apply for the AC role?
We encourage undergraduate and master’s students who are pursuing the final year of their degree to apply for an AC position. Learn more about becoming an AC.

We look for people with strong analytic abilities and outstanding academic records. However, simply being eager, driven and smart will not earn you a spot on our team. Our team is made up of passionate people, who are uncomfortable with the status quo, who are supportive of one another and who like to have a little fun while solving real-world problems. Learn more about what Bain looks for.

Bain’s interview process involves a series of case and experience interviews to help us get to know you better. Since each case interview will entail a discussion of an actual Bain case, you will also gain some insights into what it is like to work at Bain. We encourage you to prepare for your case interviews.

Successful candidates will participate in a minimum of two rounds of interviews; each round will have two 30-40 minute interviews.

First round
Should you be invited to interview, you will meet with two consultants from the Toronto office.

First round interviews will consist of two standard case interviews. Your interviewer will present a short business problem and then ask you to structure the problem and recommend a practical solution.

Second round
Those successfully passing the first round will be invited to the Toronto office for second round interviews. You will meet with Bain managers, principals or partners during this final round, which will consist of two 40-minute case interviews and an experience interview.

In the experience interview, your interviewer will ask traditional resume and behavioral questions, as well as questions about you and your interest in Bain.
