What You'll Do
As a member of our Gamma data science consulting team, your focus is on translating real-world business problems into an appropriate quantitative context and develop models that solve these questions. To do so, you’ll not only develop modeling concepts, you will implement, calibrate and backtest these and align the results and findings with our clients. You’ll combine innovative skills in (applied) mathematics, stochastics and statistics, computer science, numerical mathematics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. You’ll be working hand in hand with our senior staff, some of the world’s top minds in their respective field of analytics and industry, on cases that reshape business, government, and society. You’ll apply data science and analytics methods to real-world business situations, collaborating on challenging projects in inspiring teams, increasing your understanding of complex business problems from diverse perspectives and developing new skills and experience to help you at every stage of your career—at BCG and beyond.
Gamma consulting work is varied and rigorous, most of it performed at our client sites. Projects can vary in length, size, and location, depending on the client’s challenge. Because our clients operate all over the world, you may travel internationally. If you are joining us directly from school, expect to work with a wide range of clients and projects right from the start—from framing new business challenges, building fact-bases, developing modeling concepts and approaches, designing innovative solutions and algorithms, creating scale through designing relevant material or even tools and apps to training colleagues and clients in new solutions.
At BCG GAMMA, you’ll have the chance to work with clients in every BCG region and every industry area. Gamma is a core member of a rapidly growing analytics enterprise at BCG – a constellation of teams focused on driving practical results for BCG clients by applying leading edge analytics approaches, data, and technology.
Since its inception in 1963, BCG has been at the forefront of business management. Many of our ideas and concepts—such as time-based competition, the growth/share matrix, capabilities-based competition, and the experience curve—have had such a fundamental impact on the success of corporations that they have become central to the business lexicon. BCG continues to lead the way on issues at the vanguard of management thinking and practice.
