Hi guys,

I hear that BCG has something called fast track promotion for associates to consultant position.

How do they select whom to put onto this fast track?

What is needed in terms of skills to be considered for it.

At NAR CDC never heard of it. Fastest time to C from A0 was 24 months.

Hi there,

Yes there is a fast track, at least in Asia and Europe regions where I have worked or have close friends working - it works like any other promotional pathway for strong performers.

If you consistently perform exceptionally on your case work and get performance reviews that rank you consistently in the top of your cohort, you will be considered for faster promotion.

The best advice I can give is work hard on your projects, build strong relationships with you case leadership (managers, partners) as well as with key client members, and find a good mentor at the firm who can coach you on your performance in a safe environment.

Hope it’s helpful!

Jack
