BCG London - Areas of Winning Expertise

Hi All,

For anyone that knows MBB well in London - what would you say is a key differentiator in terms of industry or capability expertise for BCG over Bain or McKinsey?

In the same way that Bain leads the PE market or Mckinesy leads the Healthcare market, what does BCG lead relative to its peers?

Thanks!

Hello!

Keep in mind this changes even on a monthly basis, but I would say Consumer Goods is something that sets them appart.

Check in any case the London Website or some recruiting event, that would be the perfect place to ask.

Hope it helps!
