Strategy consulting firm Bain and Company has announced it plans to hire a record number of summer associates this year from the world’s top business schools. About 90% of summer associates can normally expect to receive full-time offers and summer internships have always proven more troublesome to secure than full-time employment after graduation. Bain clients range from start ups to Fortune 500s and span the sectors spectrum.
Coupling Bain with a top business school on a resume is certainly not a bad way to start off your post-MBA career. Factor in that Bain was offering total compensation of nearly $200,000 back in 2015 and that this extra hiring could lead to upward market pressure on salaries, and you can see why there is so much optimism for ROIs at the top MBA programs right now.
