ForumWatch: Choosing an Internship

Posted by: Louis Lavelle on February 16, 2012

While the economic recovery continues to take its sweet time, MBA students continue to seek summer internships and full-time jobs. The good news is that some students are receiving multiple offers, at least for internships. And they are sharing their news on the Bloomberg Businessweek Business Schools Forum.

In fact, recently, marina2, asked forum participants for advice on how to choose among summer internship offers from McKinsey, Bain, and Boston Consulting Group in a foreign locale. Commenters offered their congratulations, as well as their opinions on which firm is best. Marina2 has not shared where the offices are located. Still, the fact that someone had three offers from top consulting firms gave a boost to everyone’s spirit, which is evident in the posts.

To join the conversation, visit the “Offers from McKinsey, Bain, BCG (summer)” discussion thread.
