Swiss Top-Event

Harvest new ideas

Great teamwork, exciting challenges and cases with a true impact are critical sources of inspiration for Bainies. During two days in Lausanne, you will experience what being a Bain strategy consultant is all about. You will learn about everyday life as a consultant, career prospects, our project work, and social commitment.

This year’s Inspired event will be centered around the important topic of sustainable food systems and will be packed with new ideas, exciting challenges and fun activities around food, agriculture & sustainability. Food System Transformation is a pressing topic for consumers, companies, sustainability advocates, NGOs, and governments. An introductory speech by a senior Bain expert will lay the foundation for the case study, which you will crack during the event and which is derived from a real-life Bain case.

The event is an opportunity to get to know Bain’s unique culture and leading work, network with some of your brightest peers, and put your own case cracking skills to the test.

Join us for Inspired and harvest new ideas with us!

You can submit your documents in English or German.

You will hear back from us in the end of September 2022.

Inspired will be held in English.

We are keen to meet students who are fluent in one of the national languages of Switzerland (German, French, Italian or Romansh). In general, fluency in German is an advantage, but not required.

The safety of participants and employees has the highest priority for us. In view of the current situation, the event can be conducted without restrictions. We are, however, continuously monitoring the situation as well as the official guidelines and will inform you of any changes.

Inspired takes place on site in our office in Zurich and at different locations in and around Lausanne. We will monitor the Covid-19 pandemic and the official guidelines closely an provide you with updates on hygiene measures and testing requirements. In case the situation does not allow for an in-person event, the event will be moved to a different date and not be hosted virtually.

Bain will cover the travel expenses within Switzerland and from other European countries. Of course, Bain will also bear all the costs of the event including accommodation, meals and activities.

No, an invitation to an event does not automatically qualify you for a permanent or intern position. What it does mean is that we consider you a potentially attractive candidate.

Sure! We are happy to receive your application anytime.
