open to new adventures.
As well as career starters, we're also looking for professionals – people with experience. From MBA students and graduates with previous work experience, to seasoned experts or those with a couple of years in their industry behind them, you have the know-how.
So do we. We can make things happen and it doesn't need to follow a set path. Let's talk about what your dream role looks like and how we can make it real.
An MBA at one of the top-tier schools trains you in strategy across a broad range of industry and functional areas. MBAs teach leadership and offer the opportunity to collaborate with people from other cultures, backgrounds and disciplines, forging relationships that will last your entire career.
This is why we value MBAs. They reflect what we do. Joining us is the ideal way to turn your new expertise into something career-defining.
Are you in the middle of your MBA studies and interested in learning consultancy first-hand? Join our Summer Associate Program during your MBA and you'll spend two or three months in one of our international offices, working with us, experiencing our culture and seeing how our values mesh with yours. Or start after your degree is complete.
Apply online or speak with us next time we're on your campus.
I'd already spent several years at a large technology consultancy firm and was looking for something different. I wanted international experience and to develop my leadership skills. I wanted to have fun, too!
Roland Berger was an obvious choice. I knew as soon as I joined that I'd made the right decision. I spent the first few months working on make-or-buy strategy for an American manufacturer based in China, leading a global study on the future of manufacturing industries in Asia. I take part in personal development training in Europe. Not all hard work – one program involved skiing in Austria!
What we are looking for
Knowledgeable, creative and entrepreneurial – you have personality. You also have experience: That special ingredient that cannot be trained or fast-tracked into existence. Just a few years can make a difference. You're a game changer. The person who solves problems, who turns projects around. Tell us more.
You're a team player. You enjoy a diverse and lively workplace – being around people who challenge and rely on you – and support you back.
You have an impressive Master's, PhD or MBA. Your professional experience shows in your demeanor, expertise and depth of vision. Perhaps you already work as a consultant or are an expert in your industry.
You have a proven track record in assessing and managing risk. Identifying trends is second nature to you. You understand that we live in an increasingly interconnected world. Looking beyond your immediate sector excites you and you have developed thinking on integrated markets and industries.
You create impact – solutions that not only work on paper, but also in practice. Our clients will find you invaluable. You've achieved a lot and have the network, credentials and achievements to prove it. Let's take them even further.
Even with years in the field, you're as open-minded and adaptable as when you first started. You still love to learn, research and innovate.
You apply that knowledge. You're hands-on, keen to turn theory into practice. You always find a creative, yet practical, solution. You follow through.
You're alert, engaged and respectful – qualities that inspire respect in return. You may even have had the opportunity to lead and manage a team. It's certainly a skill you're keen to develop with us.
People who work at Roland Berger approach their tasks with enthusiasm. Their profession is a vocation. But they have a life outside the office - hobbies and passions you'd never expect from a consultant.
Frigyes flies a lot on business, though it's naturally not the same as flying a plane yourself.
"Approaching a new landing is always a challenge. You have the general know-how but the particulars only emerge gradually. You're not in the clear until you've landed and reached your destination. Working on a project is similar. You have information on the company and the task at hand but can only gain an accurate picture once you're underway."
Xavier composes his own material and studies music alongside working as a consultant. "A few years ago, we acquired a piano for the Paris office and launched a music club to play together. Studying music fits in well with consultancy. Both require creativity, analytics and synthesis. Honing a piece of music, and its various components, is not dissimilar to managing and developing strategic patterns."
