Experience consulting, rethink sustainability

At Bain, our consulting work focuses on innovative and sustainable solutions that play an important role in shaping the future and have a positive impact beyond economic value creation. Do you want to know what that looks like?

With Bainworks we offer you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the world of consulting together with other international students!

You can expect an exciting event where you will learn more about our projects, culture and social impact activities. Experience first-hand what makes working at Bain unique and put your consulting skills to the test by solving a case study. The case study is a simulation of real work we have done for one of our clients in the sustainable food industry.

But that's not all: During the two days you will get to know numerous Bainies. In personal conversations, you can ask questions and learn more about individual career paths – all in the picturesque setting of Portugal's capital Lisbon!

BAINWORKS 2018 in Barcelona

event team

dr Silvia Bergman, partner

I'm Silvia and I joined Bain over 10 years ago. I work in the field of private equity and work with our clients on due diligence and value creation projects in various sectors. My focus is on assets in the areas of consumer goods/retail, business and financial industry services and healthcare. I studied business administration at HHL Leipzig and did my doctorate at the University of St. Gallen. I found my way to Bain through an internship. What drives me then as now? Very easily! That we lead the way here and drive things: in working with our customers, in a team, in my own professional development and with flexible working models that allow me to combine an inspiring business responsibility with responsibility for my family.

dr Bettina Fussbroich, Case Team Leader

I'm Bettina and I've been with Bain for over 6 years. I support clients in the areas of consumer goods, private equity and financial services - primarily in organizational and IT projects. What makes the work special for me? The opportunity to work with exciting people every day and learn from each other - on the customer side and with Bainies. I also appreciate the unique flexibility of the project work, be it through longer breaks or flexible working time models. Before joining Bain, I did my doctorate at the German Cancer Research Center in Heidelberg and studied biology at the Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich. I also have an undergraduate degree in economics. I'm married and have two kids.
